Can do the same for green waste Green waste – could also identify which segments may be interested in signing up to the scheme – who, where, how Benefit take up – although not a CS transformation work stream we can use CI to identify groups who may not be claiming the benefits they are entitled too – similar to older peoples project.

    • Part of wider programme of activity to engage with residents more effectively on a face-to-face basis
    • Consult with vulnerable older people on council services, to encourage take-up and take feedback on services, specifically:
        • Older residents that are most in need of support or direct services, and
        • Older residents who may be unaware of the full range of services they are eligible to use.
    • Using Customer Insight, target consultation more effectively
    • Increase customer satisfaction with Council
  • Project Deliverables
    • Original Targets:
        • 500 older people contacted or visited
        • 150 referred to Council and Partner services
        • Increased satisfaction of older people with council services since last year
        • Reduced avoidable contact by older people contacting the council
    • Actual Performance to date:
        • 1235 residents contacted and 564 visited in their own homes
        • 2824 requests for services or more information
  • What the project involved
    • Recruiting the volunteer researchers

    • Other council services (eg. Adult Social Care, Community Safety)
    • Partner organisations: HAVCO, CAB, Police, Age Concern, Fire Service and others
    • Volunteers!
  • How We Used Customer Insight
    • Identified 5000 Category I residents over 65
    • Identified a sample of their addresses
    • Plotted them on a map
    • Contacted residents to arrange household visits
    • This meant we were only targeting specific households
  • Outcomes
    • Early Intervention Successes:
        • CAB advised a resident living in hardship who is now £120pw better off
        • Referrals to NHS Community services for dental implants

        • Huge increase in aids and adaptations take-up

        • Housing improvements identified
    • £64,806 in unclaimed benefits identified
    • Increased skills of the volunteers
    • Face to face service highly effective and well received by customers - 98% satisfaction
    • Cost savings of using volunteers (1152 hours = £14,400
    • Key issues: social isolation, lack of awareness of support
  • Lessons learned
    • Style of questionnaire – to be refined to capture more detailed feedback
    • Referral process improvement from phase 1 to phase 2
    • Using volunteers can be a double edged sword!
    • Customer insight extremely effective in targeting services to those most in need
