Gloucestershire County Council is conducting a survey to gather the views of adults about what is available and valuable within their community to keep them well and independent.  The results of this survey will help the local authority to understand how people use their community and how they might shape services in the future.

Jilly Beale of the County Council said, “We want to find out what people value and why and how they found out about the services and support that are available to them. We are interested to find out where people go for information and advice, what helps people to remain independent, and any services that they have used in planning for the future. We are also keen to find out the experiences of people who have stayed in hospital during the last 12 months and how they gained information to support them leaving hospital.”

This survey will take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete. It can be filled in online or on a paper copy. You don’t need to answer all the questions, only the ones that apply to you. You will not be asked for your name or other personal details so your answers will remain anonymous.
