Residents' scrutiny panel

We're recruiting!

Find out more info here. 

Our Residents’ Scrutiny Panel (RSP) gives customers the power to hold us to account by reviewing the services we provide and helping us to improve.

The RSP is made up of eight residents who come from a neighbourhood near you! They work with us to review our services to make sure they are effective and make recommendations for how we can improve services for you.

Each year, the Panel agrees the services they want to review. These are agreed with our Board of Management. As part of the scrutiny review, the group will:

  • speak to customers about the service
  • monitor customer satisfaction
  • spend time with our colleagues and teams to learn more about the service 
  • interview colleagues to gather their thoughts 
  • make recommendations to the Board of Management on how the service could be improved.

Before each service review, the Panel meet with the senior manager of the service. They provide them with a in-depth view of the service at that point in time. Each review can take between 10 – 12 weeks to complete. Recent RSP service reviews have included

  • Role of Community Coordinators 
  • Customer experience of moving home
  • Customer Voice Strategy
  • Anti Social Behaviour


Read the latest recommendations and how we are improving services as a result of the repairs review here. 

"One of best things we have done this year is develop a working relationship with service managers. It’s breaking down barriers, and changing mind-sets. We are having positive and helpful discussions about how we can get services to work better in the future and recommendations have been put in place to make sure that services improve. The Resident Scrutiny Panel is here to make a difference. Working together is the best way forward for us all." Luchia Fitzgerald - Chair of the Residents Scrutiny Panel.
