Local residents are being asked about their experiences during the Covid pandemic – and their hopes for the future. Liberal Democrat councillors have launched the survey, in print and online.
Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on South Gloucestershire Council, Cllr Claire Young, said:
“Everyone has experienced this pandemic in their own way. The experience of a key worker on the front line can be very different to that of someone shielding in isolation at home or parents juggling working from home with home schooling. We want to hear from as many people as possible, to learn what’s worked well and what people would like to do differently as we continue to grapple with the virus.
“We’re also keen to find out people’s hopes for the future. Many people are saying they don’t want everything to go back to how it used to be. This is a chance to rethink and do things better.
“We’re already delivering printed copies to 12,000 homes but even if you don’t get one you can join in online. For many it will be the first time they’ve been asked for their feedback on Covid and their post-Covid hopes. It’s really important that councils and the Government listen to and address everyone’s needs. Please share your experiences so we can make sure they do.”
