ONCALL UK: Assisting your local residents with housing issues...

Housing Associations practices and the methods in which services are offered to residents have gone through several changes in recent years. The industry will continue to adapt in an effort to become more efficient and cost effective whilst maintaining the level of services offered to residents.

Suppliers to Housing Associations need to introduce innovation into their business to ensure that cost effective, quality assistance is provided to their clients.

ONCALL UK has the solution…

Services Overview

ONCALL UK provides housing associations interpreting and translation services in a number of diverse settings including:

Tenancy Agreements

Rental Disputes

Leaflets

Rent Queries

Our interpreters arrive with a timesheet at least 15 minutes before the appointment start time to provide timely housing associations interpreting services.

Quality Management

Each interpreting and translation professional registered with ONCALL UK has undergone strict, rigorous recruitment procedures including reference checks, qualification checks and DBSchecks. ONCALL UK professionals are also subject to further training and continuing professional development. For our clients, this provides reassurance that the received high level of service is standard, regardless of region or language.

Face-to-face interpreters are sent with a feedback form, which clients are encouraged to send back to ONCALL after completing. This form is not only used as a record of provided housing associations interpreting services, but also as a reference for continuous improvement.

We contact the most experienced professionals from our extensive database to ensure the allocation of an appropriately qualified linguist. This saves time and money for the Housing Association.
