Residents are the heart of our business

Building the right structure

To make sure that the influence of residents was at the heart of our business, we decided they themselves should create the right structure. 

We brought together experienced residents, supported by Sovereign's Board, senior managers and an external expert, to jointly create a new approach.

The result is our 'triangle of involvement' which makes sure residents have a key role in the way we're run, the services we provide and how we keep a local focus within our neighbourhoods.

From this, we hope this will enable us to continue to provide good quality services, great customer experience and support strong and resilient communities.

You can also find out more about how we're maximising social value opportunities through our supply chain, and launching new initiatives to make sure that we look for commitments that really matter to our residents and the communities in which they live.
