Star Survey - 2022
We aim to undertake the Star Survey every three years. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a delay to the proceedings. We aim to carry out the next Star Survey in 2022 with a view to review and share the results in the same year.
We have still been working though! We've used the information from the 2019 Star Survey to develop our Customer Strategy, launching soon.
To ensure impartiality, the Star Survey is undertaken by an external, independent company and the tenants are chosen, by them, completely at random. We will communicate who to expect contact from and how closer to the time.
Star Survey - 2019
We are pleased that the results of the Star Survey tell us that we are doing some things really well. However, it has also flagged some areas where we are not doing so well and need to work to improve.
