Socitm Improve has been invaluable to us...

Denbighshire County Council have undertaken the Socitm benchmarking exercise for a number of years. It has been invaluable to us as we are able to analyse our annual results and compare them year on year. This allows us to look for trends enabling us to see what we are doing well and to investigate any areas which may need addressing.

In addition to comparing our results internally, we are also able to compare ourselves against other UK local authorities. It is useful to see how we compare against other councils and it also offers us a networking opportunity.
