Havant Borough Council launch survey to assess impact of coronavirus

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.

Havant Borough 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 Mark Inkster, Cabinet lead for Finance, said: “These past few months have been unprecedented and we want to understand how our residents have been affected by the pandemic. 

“Our residents’ views are really important to help us understand the issues and will inform and influence what we do.

“I encourage everyone to complete the questionnaire, and to share it with friends, family or neighbours who live in the borough.”

Have your say online or by calling 023 9244 6053, Monday - Friday between 9am and 4.30pm before Sunday 23 August 2020.
