Customer Experience and Housing Management National Group

The NHF’s new Customer Experience and Housing Management National Group has been created to lead, inform and influence our work on housing management, customer service and resident engagement. This is a critical agenda for the sector and the new group will play an important role in informing our policy positions and influencing and member engagement.

This includes:

  • The forthcoming new consumer regulation regime
  • Resident engagement
  • Customer service excellence and complaints
  • Tenure reform
  • Housing management
  • Professionalisation

Over the coming year, we expect the group will have an important role in shaping our policy positions and member engagement on the new consumer regulation regime, measures in the Social Housing Regulation Bill, changes to tenure in the expected Renters Reform Bill and our response to the recommendations of the Better Social Housing Review around customer service and resident engagement.

The group will also help shape our work on wider housing management and customer service issues where appropriate. This includes work around allocations policy, domestic abuse and anti-social behaviour.
