Our Community Survey Project is aimed at giving us a better understanding of how the local people feel about their community; as well as highlighting issues that our projects are already tackling and areas where we may be able to develop new projects.
Volunteers go house-to-house and conduct questionnaires. The content of the questionnaires varies depending on the current aims of the project.
Through this project we have been able to gain insight into unemployment rates; living conditions and access to services; skills that local people have; projects/classes that locals are interested in; and animal welfare issues. We have also initiated an employment network assisting locals with finding jobs.
