Here you can see our quarterly reports that show how Yorkshire Housing is performing in a number of areas, to help you review how we are doing.
Customer satisfaction with repairs carried out
Quarter 1 (April to June 19) – 91%
Quarter 2 (July to September 19) – 90%
- Yorkshire Housing uses a market research company called Explain to carry out customer satisfaction surveys. Explain contact 475 customers a month to ask about their experience with a recent repair.
Satisfaction with repairs has dropped slightly but is still above target. Work that is currently underway with the Customer Service Centre is generating more positive results for this metric. The West Area Team Leader has been working with both the Customer Service Centre and Morgan Sindall to improve the quality of the information we get from Customers to diagnose the problems/repairs needed so that they can be more succinct in the information needed by the contractor to get the right materials and skills to resolve the problems/repairs as quickly as possible and giving the customer a more positive experience. This also has had an impact on reducing abortive visits.
Average number of days to complete a repair
Quarter 1 (April to June 19) – 9.09 days
Quarter 2 (July to September 19) – 10.61 days
- This measure is based only on the completed repairs for the quarter, from the time the call reporting the repair is logged to when the repair has been completed.

Satisfaction with our handling of ASB cases
Quarter 1 (April to June 19) – 72%
Quarter 2 (July to September 19) – 58%
- Yorkshire Housing uses a market research company called Explain to carry out customer satisfaction surveys. This measure shows a percentage satisfaction rate with our handling of Anti Social Behaviour cases.
The satisfaction rates for our service continue to disappoint. So far this year (1st & 2nd quarters) 59% of customers surveyed gave a score 7-10 (Excellent), which compares with 69% for whole of previous 12 months. Reasons for the decline in overall satisfaction are difficult to identify. The number of completed surveys is historically low, though this could also distort figures in the opposite direction. Those giving 10 out of 10 is still the largest group, though the next largest group of customers give a very low score. Customers either think we are excellent or very poor, with little ‘middle ground’
We still believe the key to sustained high satisfaction rates is regular contact with complainants. The re-structure and new Dynamics computer system will assist in focusing resources on this task and monitoring more closely what all our customers think of the service.

Number of ASB cases tackled
Quarter 1 – 257
Quarter 2 – 335
- These figures show the number of new cases reported by customers and logged on the system (first and second quarters and for each team). We have logged 592 new cases so far this year, which shows we are running at the same rate of new cases as last year. The type of ASB cases (the categories) is also unchanged from last year. We consistently report between 34-36% of new cases as about noise problems and 17-19% about threatening and harassing behaviour, which is the same first half of this year.
