Riverside Customer Voice Executive

Riverside Customer Voice Executive role is to be a “critical friend” – independent but working in partnership with Riverside. It ensures that tenants’ views and concerns are properly heard and taken into account
at all levels of the organisation.

All customers of Riverside’s 50,000 properties are automatically members of the Riverside Customer voice. The Executive is an elected body of up to 21 Riverside customers from the different regions. This is the main route for Riverside to consult with customers.

The Riverside Customer Voice Executive has an observer on Riverside’s Group board which means that customers have a voice at the highest decision making table in the organisation.

Here are the latest Customer Voice minutes.


The role of scrutiny is to take a detailed look into the service Riverside provides, drive improvements from customer perspective, and be a ‘critical friend’ to Riverside as part of Co-Regulation.

Findings and recommendations made by scrutiny will be put forward to the Riverside Customer Voice Executive who will constructively challenge Riverside with these findings for them to respond to.


We are currently looking at training courses to help you develop your skills. As soon as we have established relevant courses more information will be available here with the option to book.

The online way to have your say

The iCommunity is a way for us to get regular feedback from you through online surveys. Each survey you fill out, you will be put into a prize draw to win £20 of shopping vouchers. Terms and conditions apply, read here.

You must be a current Riverside tenant or resident. Register your details today and wait for the first survey to appear in your mailbox.

Take part from the comfort of your home

You will have the flexibility to complete these surveys from your own home at a time that suits you. There is no pressure to get involved in every survey, you decide which ones you want to participate in.


Each time we carry out a survey we will add the results here for you to view.  All surveys results are confidential and fed back to the managers of the service, as well as the  Riverside Customer Voice Executive. We will work together using the results to improve Riverside services. The results may be used as supporting evidence for external use, for example our housing regulator.


We’re committed to strengthening our relationship with customers 

Together with Tenants is an initiative led by the National Housing Federation to promote effective working between tenants, residents, and landlords.
