Local residents of all tenures are invited to take part in this work by providing their thoughts and views via a short survey. The survey is now live till 7th July and will take about 5 minutes to complete. Information about the survey and the link to it can be found on the Councils website click here for webpage . The survey can be accessed at this link Older Person Housing Strategy Survey Residents who do not wish to use this online method but who would like to take part, can call the Council on 0333 016 2000 who will be happy to talk them through the survey or provide a written copy.
The survey is completely anonymous and each respondent has the opportunity to give their contact details which will be placed into a prize draw for £50 gift vouchers of their choice. The prize draw will be conducted on Monday 12th July. Respondents will also have the opportunity to take part in small discussion groups throughout the summer, either virtually or in a COVID safe environment.
I would be most obliged if you would kindly support this piece of research by promoting it to your residents through your normal channels.
If anyone would like to discuss any aspects of this research further, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
