Data is the key to good decision-making. Increasingly, decision-makers (including funders) look for a strong, data-centred basis for any applications made to them, often with the views of the affected community being a key component. Surveys are therefore a key form of community consultation, offering an opportunity to quickly gather a large body of responses to demonstrate collective feeling about a project, or to determine an initiative's viability. The ability to conduct a good survey is an essential component of running most third sector organisations.
This webinar will explore:
Framing the main question - what do you want to know, and why?
Targeting the right people in the right way at the right time;
Understanding question types and when to use them;
Structuring and wording your questions to encourage responses;
Basic results analysis and reporting; and
Some of the tools that are available to help.
Who should attend?
This webinar is suitable for any person/group that needs to consult with their community/membership. It will be of particular use to those looking to submit applications for funding or property transfers where an idea of local buy-in needs to be evidenced.
