We’ve launched a survey for residents to have their say on the effect of Coronavirus on their lives.

We know this is an extremely challenging time for you and that the Coronavirus pandemic has affected many aspects of your day to day life.

Why your views matter

We want to better understand how your life has been affected, how you are feeling now, what support services you are accessing and how Council services can help support your recovery over the coming months.

We would be grateful if could complete this short survey which should take you less than 10 minutes. Your answers will remain anonymous unless you would like to provide us with your contact details so you can be involved in future conversations about service delivery.

Survey results will be shared with residents and used to inform further conversations and engagement sessions. These will help the Council have a deeper understanding of how services can meet your needs.
