Awards and accreditations

Customer Service Excellence

We secured reaccreditation in the Government’s Customer Service Excellence scheme for the eleventh consecutive year. This reaccreditation recognises the excellent standard of customer service that we provide for our tenants.

The Customer Service Excellence Assessor said, “St Leger Homes is a customer focused organisation, providing excellent customer service, with a high level of customer satisfaction. St Leger Homes is to be congratulated for maintaining accreditation to the Customer Service Excellence Standard for eleven years, which is an excellent achievement.

SHIFT Gold award

We achieved the SHIFT Gold accreditation for the second year running for the commitment we have shown in reducing the environmental impact of council housing across Doncaster.

The SHIFT assessment provides an independent assessment of how housing organisations are performing against challenging environmental targets. This year we were delighted to see that our overall environmental score had improved, which demonstrates how hard we are working to combat climate change.
