Different Ways to Get Involved

Getting Involved - Family Image

From simply telling us how we are doing to actively getting involved in developing how we work, there are plenty of ways for you to influence what we do. A whole range of opportunities is on offer for you to have your say and help shape and improve our services. Here are some of them.

Keeping you informed 

Each year, we publish a customer newsletter and an annual report, which let you know how we are performing. We also regularly update our website.

Customer surveys

You can get involved by simply completing one of our customer surveys by post, over the phone, by text or online. This is a quick and easy way to get your voice heard and we very much value your feedback when it comes to improving the services we provide.

Mystery shopping

We invite customers to ‘go undercover’ and become mystery shoppers, helping us test the true quality of our services over the telephone and online.

Reading Panel

We are always looking for volunteers to join our Reading Panel. This involves ‘editing’ our customer publications such as our annual report, newsletters and fact sheets. To pass the Panel’s scrutiny, information must be relevant, interesting and easy to understand. This is a job that can be tackled from home with no need to attend meetings. 

Tenant Scrutiny Committee

Our Tenant Scrutiny Committee acts as a ‘critical friend’, reviewing and challenging how we are performing and how we deliver our services. We consult, with the Committee, on any major changes to the ways we deliver our services. Click here to read more about the Committee’s work.

Customer Board Member

Our Board is made up of volunteers who direct and control our business, making sure that Arcon is well run and delivers our corporate plan objectives. Our Board, of up to 10 people, meets six times a year and our customers are represented by a Customer Board Member.
