Future Focus Research have just completed recruiting a Citizens Panel for Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council. This involved recruiting 1000 residents to join a panel.
Kelly Jones from Future Focus Research said ‘We were delighted to have won the project as Blaenau Gwent is an area that we know well and where we have a number of interviewers.’
The Panel will be used by the Council and its’ partners to gain attitudes and opinions to a range of local services. One of the key criteria in recruitment was to ensure that the Panel was representative of the residents of Blaenau Gwent and using quota controls on age, gender and area this was achieved. As a part of the survey respondents were asked how they wished to be contacted by the Council and over 70% said their preferred method was postal.
