Testimonials

The team who work for Open Communities have carried out a host of surveys and test of opinions of social housing tenants, and therefore we had every confidence that they would deliver a successful continuation ballot…….We really valued the door knocking they did near the end of the process, this was targeted at tenants who had not yet voted, encouraging them to use their vote.

The whole process was organised, well managed and clear for all involved, resulting in a 65% turnout and 95% in favour of the EMB continuing in management. Thanks Open Communities

Karen Williams| Chief Officer BUSHBURY HILL EMB WOLVERHAMPTON

From the outset a good working relationship was established and every action required was clear and well managed. The fact that Open Communities undertook a comprehensive door knocking exercise to maximise turnout was excellent as this meant our staff could continue their daily work.

Achieving an 88% positive vote in our ballot – from a 50% turnout across our community – was testament to the hard work of everyone involved. A big thank you to all at Open Communities
