STAR survey results

The full STAR (survey of tenants and residents) was last completed in 2020.

506 of our tenants took part in our telephone survey carried out by Acuity on behalf of Somerset West and Taunton. The survey focused on finding out how happy our tenants are with the way that we carry out key services.

  • 85% of tenants are happy with their neighbourhood as a place to live and 70% feel that SWT makes a positive contribution to their neighbourhood.
  • 86% of tenants were satisfied with their last repair and 95% are happy with Gas Servicing arrangements, 77% of tenants were satisfied that they were told when our workers would call.
  • The majority of tenants are satisfied with the customer service they have received, the highest rating was received for helpfulness of staff at 84% and the lowest rating was for enquiry dealt with on first call at 64%.

The Regulator of Social Housing has introduced tenant satisfaction measures (TSMs) from 1 April 2023 and therefore the way that we gather tenant satisfaction information has changed.

The new TSMs will enable tenants to scrutinise their landlord’s performance and give landlords insight about where they can improve. Please see our Tenant Satisfaction Measures web page for the latest tenant satisfaction results.
