Survey launched to assess impact of coronavirus on local people

Thursday, 30 July, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has been an extremely challenging time for our residents and has affected many aspects of day to day life.

East Hampshire District Council would like to hear from residents on how this has affected their lives, what services they have received and how they are feeling now.

The survey is completely anonymous and can be completed online or on the telephone.

Feedback will be used to identify local support needs, help with signposting to assistance programmes and identity measures that will help with the recovery from the crisis.

The survey looks as a number of issues, including employment, financial support, mental health, access to services, education, community safety and links to the community. It also tries to understand how local behaviours might change in the future – including working from home, more active travel or volunteering.

Councillor Charles Louisson, Cabinet lead for Finance, said: “We want to fully understand the true impact that the coronavirus has had on our residents and what help they will need to recover. I would urge them to take a little time to fill in this survey so that their experience and views can guide our future support, assistance and investment programmes.”
