Cheshire West and Chester Council is developing a new online citizens’ panel and we have commissioned Opinion Research Services (ORS: www.ors.org.uk) to contact local residents and invite you to join.

ORS may contact you on behalf of the Council during January and February 2021 via email, SMS or telephone call. We find it harder to reach younger residents, particularly those aged between 18 to 34, so if anyone in your household is this age, we would be especially keen for them to join.

This is an exciting opportunity to help shape local services, especially as we manage the recovery from the impacts of COVID-19. The commitment is low, you will simply be invited take part in online engagement such as surveys and can choose which activities you want to take part in.

The Panel will help the Council understand residents’ views and ideas about a range of important issues, such as health and wellbeing, the environment and the local economy. Feedback from the panel will inform our decisions and help us do the right things to meet local peoples’ needs.

If you are interested in joining, please complete our short sign-up form below or read our further information to find out more.

If you have already registered to join the Participate Panel, thank you, we look forward to listening to your ideas and will be in touch with our first Panel survey in February 2021.
