Throughout April/May residents in North East Lincolnshire are being asked to fill out a new community cohesion survey for the safer and stronger community team.
The questionnaire asks people about the community they live in, which areas in North East Lincolnshire people may feel less safe in and why. It also asks why people may not feel integrated in their local area, regardless of ethnic background, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
The North East Lincolnshire Council’s safer and stronger community team alongside other organisations hope that the results will be used to identify the areas of concern, and explore opportunities to address the issues raised and to find both short and long term solutions.
It is important that all local people take part in the questionnaire in order to give a better representation of the wider area. It will also promote different social groups, volunteering communities, and offer many different perspective and opinions.
Councillor Hazel Chase, portfolio holder for Safer and Stronger communities at North East Lincolnshire Council, said:
“In the recent months Grimsby and the surrounding areas have been the target of a TV show and film (Skint and the film Grimsby), this survey will allow us to see how members of the public feel about the area, and what their main concerns are. North East Lincolnshire is a great place to live but there is also room to improve it, and that isn’t possible without listening to the community.”
“This questionnaire will bring the community together and allow them to participate in making the town even greater, and will allow the safer and stronger community team to work on a plan based on the results.”
