Diversity survey

We are working with Investors in Diversity (IiD) to find out as much as possible about how well you think we promote equality and diversity.

Please complete this survey to help IiD assess our strengths and weaknesses and judge whether we are a fair, equal and inclusive company. Your answers will be completely anonymous – it’s your chance to express your honest opinion about your experience.

The closing date is Tuesday 31st March 2015. If you would prefer a paper copy of this survey, or would like some help to complete it, please contact us.


Our vans

The lease for our existing vehicles is coming to an end, this means that the logos will be being removed. New vehicles will carry our updated logo (pictured below). In the meantime it is possible that some of our vehicle fleet may be on the road without any signage (i.e. a plain white van). Our tradespeople will of course continue to wear and carry CHP identification at all times.

Report a concern

If you have seen or heard something in one of our properties that concerns you and needs to be dealt with by us, please Report a concern.
