Equality & Diversity
We provide services to a wide range of people and aim to deliver services that meet the needs of everyone within our communities. As part of our customer service we ensure that you will receive equal access to all BCH services. We recognise that being able to understand individual needs will help us deliver our housing services in a sensitive and appropriate way and we are committed to removing any barriers our customers may face in accessing our services.
We continually work to promote good relations between people of different backgrounds and seek to ensure that access, service and opportunities are equal, regardless of race, religion, culture, nationality, ethnic background, colour, physical or mental disability, gender, sexuality, age, literacy, income level and marital status. Our Equality Policy sets out our vision and commitment to ensuring equal access and opportunities for all.
Key Performance Information
Below you will find key performance information from across the organisation. Results are published on a quarterly basis throughout the year (April - March).
The STAR survey is an independent assessment of the organisation's performance. Recognised nationally, the results provide a great way for us to benchmark our performance against other social housing providers.
When a customer uses our services, they are asked to complete a survey which captures their satisfaction level with that particular service (transaction).
Each month we produce a report which includes details of every invoice totalling over £500 paid to our suppliers. The report is produced in line with the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government’s code of practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency.
