We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes.

We asked

About how you engage with children and young people to improve your services.

You said

Some of you had explicit strategies while others didn't. The most common ways you involved children and young people were through a suggestion box, involving them in planning and running events and having an easily accessible complaints policy. You would all be happy to sign up for a Trafford wide pledge to our children and young people.

We did

We are currently working with children and young people to finalise our strategy going forward. This includes a pledge to our children and young people written with our children and young people. Once the pledge is finalised we will send it out for consultation with you before asking you to sign up to it.

We asked

The Access Trafford Customer Survey  was carried out for 30 days by asking residents who recently contacted Access Trafford by phone and email to complete a short survey to help us gain valuable insight into what we do well and where we can improve.  Thank you to the 150 residents who took the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. 

We asked you the following questions to help us forward plan and improve our service to you.

  • To rate the professionalism and friendliness of our Customer Service Advisors
  •  How you found waiting times when contacting us by telephone.

We did

As over 45% of respondents had tried to use the Council website before contacting  Access Trafford. We analysed the comments received to work on improving the Council Website.  Comments mentioned out of date information, difficulties making online payments and navigation of the website.  The information from our survey was discussed with the Web Team who working on improving the content and accessibility.

The Access Trafford Contact Centre does not deal with waste or highway issues, this is a One Trafford Service that is provided by Amey on behalf of the Council. The information regarding bin pages on the website and ordering  green waste bags has been passed to One Trafford.  Improvements have been made to the website content and processes to improve the customer experience.

The  next  Access Trafford customer survey will be winter 2021.
