Residents Surveys

Over the past few weeks I have been delivering Resident Survey forms to homes in the Drypool ward. It’s a great way to keep in touch with residents. The response has been great, when ever I deliver in an area of the ward over the next few days I get a steady trickle of replies. Each one returned is fascinating, full of the real issues which are of concern. The number of replies is generating quite a bit of casework, its no good just getting the response reading it and putting it to one side every form has to be answered. Well I say every form but you obviously get the ones that cant be answered. Usually because the address is missing deliberately or not.

Hi Gary. I'm a Labour activist in Wales. Have never bothered doing surveys before though. What sort of response rate are you getting from your survey - ie percentage wise?
