We are delighted to be working with University College London to understand how COVID-19 has impacted upon people’s routine and online activities, crime and their perceptions of it.
To help with this work, we are encouraging our supporters to participate in a short survey (surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9LGPHDL) which closes on 23rd December.
As well as understanding how the pandemic has affected things to date, the aim of the survey is to understand how it might do so in the future. Your participation will be really valuable and help us understand things that other data cannot.
We estimate that it will take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be stored securely and you will not be asked for any information that would identify you as an individual.
If you are willing to take part, please complete this survey: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9LGPHDL
Please support this work – with your help I am sure we can gain real insight into the effects of COVID-19 on crime.

West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership would like your help us to understand the barriers people face in accessing greenspace and your potential interest in green social prescribing.
We have created a very short survey (closing this Wed 25th November). It is the first stage of a much more detailed engagement piece.
Green social prescribing links people to nature-based interventions and activities and includes both green and blue (rivers, lakes etc) environments. Activities are varied and may include green exercise, such as local Walking for Health schemes and dementia walks, active travel (such as walking or cycling), local Park Runs, care farming, community gardening and food growing projects, as well as conservation volunteering, green gyms, and arts and cultural activities which take place outdoors.
We would appreciate if you could complete this survey for us. We are especially keen on hearing from people living in the most deprived areas, people from BAME backgrounds, and people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and autism.
Along with Healthwatch Calderdale and local NHS organisations, Disability Partnership Calderdale would like to ask you for your help! Have you used any Health or Care services since lockdown began? Or have you visited someone, or helped someone who was attending a health or care setting? For example, a GP surgery, Hospital, Pharmacy or Care Setting?
If so, DPC would really appreciate it if you could spare ten minutes to tell them about it over the phone, so that they can feed your experiences back to the NHS. This can be done by either talking to you or texting you. DPC are currently working in partnership with Healthwatch Calderdale and local NHS organisations to understand the issues, whether positive or negative, that people may have experienced when accessing health and care services during lockdown.
If you would like to share your NHS experiences with DPC, please call or text on the number below to register your interest. One of the DPC workers will take your details and call / text you back at a time to suit you, to go through the ten- minute survey at your convenience.
your input on this matter is greatly appreciated and DPC look forward to hearing from you. Please call or text on 07716 122897

We, the young people’s Tough Times Reference Group, have released this survey during Children’s Mental Health Week. This is to collect views from all children and young people on emotions and mental health support with the aim to help shape and improve services. We would like everyone who takes part in this survey to know its anonymous, and the results will be shared with managers of services that will listen and take these results from this survey seriously.
We hope to get a 1000 voices and would appreciate everyone’s help to achieve this

We know activity plays a huge part to promote good physical and mental health and wellbeing in people of all ages.
Last year IBM worked with the Council to identify how to encourage more active, healthy and longer lives in the borough. Their recommendations included working with local organisations and people to create even more activities, and giving residents more information about how healthy they currently are to inspire them to make healthy choices.
On the back of that partnership, a new physical activity strategy, Active Calderdale, has been developed that sets out a range of measures to help us become the most active borough in the north of England by 2021.
Now we urgently need your input to make sure the strategy is right. Join us on the journey to a more active Calderdale by giving your thoughts and feedback by Sunday 5 March.
As a young person, how would you like to receive information regarding services which are available to you? Facebook, Google, Twitter… Something else!
Take a short survey being carried out throughout August to let us know how you currently find out about services available to you and how you would like to hear about them in the future.
If you are working with any young people during August please take the time to have them complete the survey.
A new consultation entitled ‘Your Priorities, Your Plan’ has been launched to find out what matters to the public, police and partners across the county to inform the new Police and Crime Plan for 2016-21
The consultation involves a survey on your priorities, but will also see the Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire talking to communities and many of you in person over the coming months.
Please spare some time to fill in the survey and encourage your family, friends and colleagues to do the same.
For more information and to complete the survey visit www.westyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk/get-involved/your-priorities-your-plan.aspx, or to request a survey call (01924) 294000.
