Delivering excellent services
Their tenant services include rent collection, managing empty properties and settling new tenants into their homes. They offer financial advice and support our tenants through welfare reforms.

Their customer services centre is the lynchpin of their customer services, responding to 90,000 telephone calls every year.  Their teams also offer face to face services through their four area service centres and while out and about on estates.

Involving residents
CityWest Homes ensure their tenants and leaseholders are at the heart of everything they do by regularly speaking to local people and offering forums through which they can feedback on their services. They have launched four independent resident area panels with 56 members who represent the wider community to help shape local services.

They also support 10 sounding boards, 27 resident associations and nine tenant management organisations.

Supporting neighbourhoods
