SALC Community survey

  • Period: 15 February 2021 - 31 March 2021
  • Status: Closed
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Community and living
  • Type: Public
This survey has been developed in partnership by the Shropshire Association of Local Councils (SALC) and the Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly (VCSA). This survey is designed to encourage community-based groups and organisations to highlight key local issues. A very similar survey has been designed for town councils, parish councils and parish meetings. We hope to use the survey to learn more about:
  • How local communities have responded to the coronavirus pandemic
  • Any concerns or issues currently being faced or identified community concerns for the future
  • Organisational support needs
  • How local partnerships are benefiting local people
  • Examples of good practice
  • Ideas, suggestions and opportunities for the future
Co-operation between community groups and town and parish councils has always been important, but the results local partnerships achieve have been recognised more than ever during the coronavirus pandemic. Understanding this joint working will be important as we work together to overcome future challenges and recover from the impacts of the pandemic.

Shropshire Council’s Feedback and Insight Team will support with survey analysis and we hope the results will help form a baseline for future research. Please share this survey widely. We welcome any feedback you may have, so please use the open space at the end of the survey to add any issues not covered within the survey questions.


For community-based groups and organisations to highlight key local issues.
