Have Your Say


Community Insight Survey 2019

We want everyone in Devon to live their lives well. To do this, we need to understand what matters most to you and where you experience difficulties in your life.

The Community Insight Survey asks about your experiences of a range of services and the County Council’s strategic aims. We will also ask you about Council Tax increases and community resources and capacity (such as your ability to look after yourself), which can impact on the Council’s resources.

The results will be shared across services and used to inform budget decisions and how services are provided in future.

Consultation method:

Online survey: Community Insight survey

Other formats:

For people with learning disability / limited English language (see note below):

For people who are partially sighted:

Workshops and assisted completion for disabled people and other minority groups are also taking place.

A note about the easy read versions: 

Easy read uses simple words and pictures and is a format usually used for people with learning disabilities, but may also be helpful for people with limited English language.

The easy read ‘assisted version’ uses a ‘five star’ rating which is the same as the rating used in the standard survey. The results of this survey can be merged with the results of the standard survey. A person with a learning disability may need some assistance using this form.

The online easy read version is simpler, using a ‘yes/no’ rating. A person with a learning disability may be able to use this version independently. However, the results cannot be merged but will be reported alongside the standard survey results.
