Hello and welcome Thrive’s latest updates
The new service charge period has started and our Estates and Facilities team is already hard at work making sure our contractors provide you with the service you pay for.
During this newsletter you can access the latest on our services. Getting it right is important, and we can achieve this together. Please keep giving feedback on services throughout the year so we can make sure things stay on track.
We're proud to share that 50% of households are now part of Thrive Customer Voice, which allowed 698 customers to influence our services last year. This is an essential way to create positive change, so if you're not already involved, we would love to have you on board. You can find out about upcoming activities below.
In the coming year, we will continue to monitor communal gas and electricity pricing closely to ensure that we get you the best deal. We'll also pay special attention to areas where you've suggested we can do better such as choosing a new cleaning contractor.

Your voice matters!
You may have heard about the new Tenant Satisfaction Measures. This is a set of survey questions our regulator requires us to ask you about your experience of Thrive.
If you receive a call from IFF, our research partner, it's not a scam. We value input and use it to check we're delivering services where we may need to improve.
Clear communal spaces can save lives by preventing the spread of fire.
If we find items left outside your home, we'll remove them and give you 28 days to recover them before they are disposed of for good.
It's a hassle and a cost to you, so please keep your belongings inside your home.
Looking after your bin store keeps service charges down
Find out who's responsible for your communal bin collections, what goes in what bin and what to do if someone is fly-tipping in your bin store.
