Our five strategies set out the overall long term direction of the Authority. They explain what we are doing to support the delivery of our vision, mission and objectives. They cover every aspect of the Authority’s work and focus on the services that we provide to you, whether you are at home, in your car or at work. The strategies reflect the context in which the Authority operates, such as funding pressures as well as demographic and climate changes. Our strategies come to an end in 2018. We will be reviewing them in 2017/18 and will publish a new strategic document in the coming year.
Focusing on our customers
As an organisation we pride ourselves in how we treat our customers. We have multiple everyday examples of how our workforce shows empathy, kindness and support to help the public in distressing and challenging situations. However, we are not complacent and know, from the research we have conducted, that we can do more to achieve excellence in this area. Over the coming years we will use a range of techniques to gain an increasing understanding of how we can better meet the needs of customers externally and internally. Customer focus and customer care will remain central to everything we do.
