North Yorkshire Views is an online engagement community where members are invited to take part in at least four surveys a year. Members may also be offered the opportunity to take part in polls, focus groups, workshops and user testing exercises. The community will be one of the most important ways by which we consult with residents to help shape our services. Members must be 18 or over and live in North Yorkshire.

Surveys will cover a wide variety of topics, including views on life in North Yorkshire as well as different strategies and services delivered by the council. In addition community members may also be made aware of other engagement and consultation activity.

Marie-Ann Jackson, head of stronger communities, said: “Having the views and involvement of our residents is vitally important for the stronger communities programme. Not only does it help us ensure that our investment priorities are informed by strong evidence, having a residents panel that we can contact really helps us understand whether our projects are having a positive impact. By tracking differences in how people feel about their community, what is important to them and understanding how involved they are allows us to build up the evidence about what works and helps protect valued community assets and services.”
