West Northamptonshire Council is celebrating the National Customer Service Week (2-6 October), with partner drop-in sessions for residents lasting the whole week.
Launched by the Institute of Customer Service, National Customer Service Week is a week-long opportunity to raise awareness of customer service and the vital role it plays in successful business practices.
Our customer services team provide advice and support on a wide range of West Northants Council services, from housing options to council tax and everything else in between. Between April to August 2023, WNC's Customer Services teams received over 164,000 calls, averaging around 1,083 calls per day, or 146 calls per hour. Additionally, the team handled over 32,000 emails during the same period.
To celebrate the week and highlight some of the services available, partners from the Northants Fire and Rescue Service and Commsave (Northamptonshire’s Credit Union) will provide support and information to residents, with drop-in sessions available across the area.
