Sector wider survey 2014 in Wales

The findings of the first national survey of Welsh housing associations, published by CHC:

  • revealed that 81% of tenants who participated were 'very' or 'fairly' satisfied with their landlord and their home
  • overall, more than 70% of tenants are 'very' or 'fairly' satisfied with the quality of their home, its repairs and maintenance and the community they live in
  • 70% thought the rent they paid their landlord represented value for money.

The report has a specific section on housing for older people (pp68-70) which will be of interest to Housing LIN Cymru members.

In particular, it highlights that the majority of older people were very or fairly satisfied with their housing with matters relating to accessibility, orientation, safety and security scoring over 90% and issues relating to support planning, on-site facilities and community alarm/telecare scoring in the mid to high 80%.
