How is the Service performing?

Performance Information and Customer Feedback

We use a range of performance indicators to assess how we are doing, to measure attendance and to monitor the uptake of arts activities. We welcome customer feedback and use this to help us improve the services we provide. A number of service improvements have taken place as a result of suggestions from our customers.
