Trafford Housing Trust


What better way to learn about how we’re doing than to hear directly from customers who receive our services and live in our communities.

That’s why back in 2011 we gathered a team of enthusiastic customers from across Trafford to tell the Trust’s Board members how we can improve and recommend changes they’d like to see. This group is called the Quality and Insight Panel (QIP), who get together every two weeks to work on various projects, review our services and speak to staff, suppliers and other customers to gather insight.

The group also look at a range of organisations from mobile phone operators to airline companies to see how what we can learn from their processes. One of the ways the QIP has made a difference so far includes improving our empty property clearance process to reduce waiting times, queries and lost property. 

 The team meets every two weeks with expenses paid. If you would like to become a QIP member, please email
