Facebook Guidelines and Service Agreement

Social media are internet based tools that enable people to create, share, and exchange information, ideas, pictures, and videos in virtual communities and networks. Common social media are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube, Whatsapp and Skype.

  • Information about Estuary services
  • Other information relevant to our residents, such as local services and healthcare information 
  • Skills and employment opportunities
  • The ways residents can get involved
  • Campaigns and competitions
  • Resident stories and successes

Service standards

Our  Facebook page is an additional communication channel where you can receive information from us and you can communicate with us. We offer the same service standards throughout our communication methods. Our Facebook page is not a ‘shortcut’ for dealing with enquiries or complaints.

We aim to respond to comments or queries the same working day, where a response is required.
