Sneak preview of our annual survey results

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to complete our annual survey. As Tom explained in his last blog, the results from the survey help us understand what is working well in different areas across England, as well as what is not working so well. The findings also help us set our priorities for the coming year as we respond to what you’ve told us.

Secondly, our survey is open for another two weeks!

This is the third in a series of blogs exploring interesting trends to emerge from our 2012 annual survey of local Compacts. In this blog, we delve deep into the data in an attempt to assess the impact of local Compact work.
