In late 2010 stakeholders of MSC were surveyed so that MSC could better understand the quality of its delivery.  These stakeholders were drawn from the vocational sector, community volunteer and government departments.

The survey was grouped in five key areas which were leadership and directions, communication, service delivery, quality of relationship and overall performance. The survey questions comprised of both quantitative assessments and general  questions utilising open questions and comments.  

The results are informative and valuable  and will be utilised to inform MSC’s service delivery in the future.
