How does it work?
Annually, up to four questionnaires are sent by post to Viewpoint members, each containing a number of survey topics submitted by community planning partners. These can either be completed on paper or alternatively, using an internet based link, with each survey remaining open for around three weeks.
Once the survey has closed and the results are analysed, a detailed report is prepared and passed to the relevant partner organisations. Ultimately, a Viewpoint newsletter is prepared and sent to all panel members detailing the key findings from the survey. Importantly, this newsletter also contains comment from partner representatives, who provide feedback on how they will use the survey results within their area of responsibility.
