Customer Engagement 

Customer Engagement plays an important part in helping us to shape and improving our services to better meet the needs of our customers. 

If you are a tenant, you can access the "Tenant Hub", a space for West Lancashire Borough Council's housing tenants to access all tenant related surveys, share ideas and discuss important topics. 

We want our customers' voice to be at the heart of everything we do, and we hope you will get involved.
