OYC Meeting Minutes – 21/09/2022
RESIDENT CHARTER Consultation is when members of an organisation gather information/feedback from members of the public or group on a project or scheme. More
Fran, the head of the Customer and Digital experience of Oldham Council, joined the
meeting and talked about how councils offer numerous services, and how they obviously
have to communicate with residents for any issues, and how they utilise both telephones/in-
person methods, but also digital methods.
First, Fran showed Youth Councillors a video of multiple residents talking what their experiences
were in communicating with the council, and the delivery of council’s services. After which, Fran showed the youth councillors the plan, where council wants to optimise services for residents, including the way of delivering the service, including points of contact, in order to make the residents happier overall.
Later, Fran talked about what Oldham Council is looking to do moving forward e.g. making communications more transparent and simple and improving services in general.
Additionally, Fran introduced the “Cost of Living Summit” which is a proposed sytem (being debated by leaders) where £3 million of Council funds will go back to residents to aid with the cost of living.
