SALC Members' survey

  • Period: 15 February 2021 - 31 March 2021
  • Status: Closed
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Community and living
  • Type: Public
The coronavirus pandemic has emphasised the importance of the work of local councils and community groups and organisations. The work of local leaders and volunteers has been recognised. Communities across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin responded quickly to establish pandemic responses and continue to ensure community members most in need of support receive information and assistance. Cooperation between community groups and town and parish councils will continue to be essential as we work together to overcome future challenges and recover from the impacts of the pandemic.
SALC has been working with Shropshire Council’s Feedback and Insight Team to prepare some key questions for local research. This survey is designed for town and parish councils across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. 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
We hope the results will provide a baseline for future research. A similar survey will be made available for local community groups and we encourage you to share this within your community. Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly will also support the research.

SALC will use the results to record the work that has taken place by its members over the last year. The feedback will also be used to prepare for the future.
We welcome any feedback you may have, please use the open space at the end of the survey to add any issues not covered within the survey questions.
