Customer Involvement Policy

Warrington Housing Association’s Scrutiny Panel (WHASP) works on behalf of tenants, by carrying out reviews aimed at improving WHA’s policies and services. By working together they hope to find solutions to improve services, save money and bring real and long-lasting changes to the WHA community.

The panel is made up of a number of tenants who carry out detailed investigations into WHAs’ work. The Panel have Terms of Reference and a Code of Conduct they must follow.

The Scrutiny Panel helps improve the delivery and quality of services from WHA by ensuring that decisions are soundly based on evidence.

To join WHASP you need to be enthusiastic and committed and have a good attention to detail.  IT skills are desirable, but are not necessary to carry out the role.

They usually carry out 2 to 3 reviews each year and these reviews often require you to attend 4 – 6 meetings over an 8 – 10 week approximately.  Meetings usually take place during the day, at WHA’s Offices.

Over the last 12 months the Scrutiny Panel have completed two reviews.

Mystery Shoppers help us to measure the quality of the services you receive.

They will review us in a variety of ways, such as our response when we are contacted via the telephone, how we respond when a tenant comes into the office or how we respond when contacted via a text message, letter or email.

They can either complete a paper based form (sent out in the post) or through our online survey system ‘Survey Monkey’.  All reviews returned to us are completely anonymous and should only take 5 – 10 minutes to complete.

Completing a mystery shop is simple and the form can be completed when a genuine enquiry is being made.  No need to make something up, or create a false issue – just complete the survey when you need to contact us whether it be for a repair or a rent enquiry.

Our mystery shopper’s feedback is vital to ensure that we are providing the best we can through all our services and our different communication channels.

If you are interested in becoming a mystery shopper please contact our Community Development Officer for further information.
