Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Everyone at Enventure Research would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Engaging residents in London's Western Riverside
Western Riverside Waste Authority, the waste collection authority for Lambeth, Hammersmith & Fullham Kensington & Chelsea, Wandsworth Councils, has recently appointed Enventure to carry doorstep engagements with residents across all four London Boroughs. Enventure's dedicated engagement team will knock on 50,000 doors talking to residents about recycling, with a focus on making sure residents are not contminating recycling bags with the wrong recycling materials.
Barnet Council appoints Enventure for large scale resident engagement
We are extremely pleased to announce that after a rigorous tendering exercise, Enventure has been appointed by London Borough of Barnet to manage its large scale resident engagement project to support its new recycling scheme. The campaign will start on Tuesday 15 October to conicide with the launch of the new recycling scheme and will involve knocking on 102,000 doors throughout the Borough, speaking with 40,800 (40%).
Focus Group Research with Manchester City Council Employees
Enventure Research has been commissioned by Manchester City Council through its Research Framework to investigate what motivates and engages Council employees in the workplace.
Levels of motivation and engagement are very important to Manchester City Council, as disengagement and de-motivation can have serious impacts on the wellbeing of staff, the services delivered to customers, the performance of the Council and levels of efficiency. To gain an in depth understanding of this topic, Enventure Research will undertake a series of five focus groups with Council employees from a range of roles and services to investigate what motivates them in their job and what encourages them to feel engaged at work.
Enventure Research will be providing Manchester City Council with a comprehensive report on the feedback from the focus groups to help decide a way forward to improve the situation.
Resident Engagement in the London Borough of Bexley
Enventure Research is about to embark on a campaign of door to door resident engagement in the London Borough of Bexley to promote the recycling services to residents living in flats and flats above shops.
Bexley has around 16,000 households in blocks of flats or on estates, provided with communal waste and recycling bins, and an additional 1,400 households located above shops which are provided with their own dedicated collection of waste and recycling. Enventure’s team of canvassers aims to speak to a large proportion of these residents to explain how to correctly recycle using the services available and to collect some useful data about their recycling habits, attitudes and satisfaction.
The campaign is due to start mid September and will run for six weeks.
Nottinghamshire CC extends annual survey for a further year
Nottinghamshire County Council has extended its Annual Resident Satisfaction survey contract with Enventure Research for a further year. The 2013 survey will include stakeholders such as Nottinghamshire County Council, Broxtowe Borough Council, Bassetlaw District Council, Police and Crime Commissioner and Bassetlaw NHS.
The research will be conducted via face-to-face interviews with 1,200 residents, representative of the County’s population in terms of age, gender, ethnicity and working status.
The survey will build Nottinghamshire County Council’s understanding of resident’s satisfaction and attitudes towards value for money, communication, safety and well-being. The insight from the survey will also allow the Council to benchmark with their previous Place Surveys and with other Councils across the county. All interviews will be completed during October 2013.
For further information on undertaking resident surveys, please conact Mark Robinson on 01274 866845.
Marketing Birmingham Leisure and Business Tourism Survey 2013
Enventure Research is currently working with Marketing Birmingham to conduct its Leisure and Business Tourism Survey 2013. Marketing Birmingham is the area’s strategic marketing partnership and operates the leisure and business tourism programmes, Visit and Meet Birmingham, promoting Birmingham and its wider area, including the Black Country and Solihull.
The survey aims to provide a major market appraisal of the profile, activities, motivations to visit, perceptions and satisfaction and expenditure of those visiting the area in order to inform the strategic thinking of Marketing Birmingham and other project partners, marketing and promotion of the area as a visitor destination.
The survey is being administered by Enventure Research via face-to-face interviews at a number of popular locations around Birmingham and the surrounding areas to 2,000 visitors. To support the survey, a follow up online survey and additional telephone interviews are also being conducted.
Training of Volunteers in Doorstep Engagement and Surveys
Enventure Research has been commissioned by Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority (GMWDA) to provide a series of training sessions with volunteers to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct doorstep engagement and face-to-face doorstep surveys.
The training forms part of GMWDA’s ‘Up and Forward’ project funded by the EU LIFE+ financial instrument, to show how communication activities can improve waste prevention and recycling in low performing urban areas. The project involves 12 communication campaigns based around four key themes of 1) deprivation, 2) transience, youth and students, 3) different cultures and 4) high density housing.
Over the duration of the project, Enventure Research will deliver a total of 34 training sessions with volunteers, ensuring they have the right knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to engage with the general public about waste and recycling issues and collect useful and accurate data.
Understanding Views on Maternity and Neonatal Care in Leeds
Enventure has recently worked with NHS Leeds South and East Clinical Commissioning Group to assist them in conducting a survey of users of maternity and neonatal care in Leeds.
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is considering changing the way that maternity and neonatal services are delivered in Leeds from 2016, moving all services for birth and specialist care for babies after birth (neonatal care) to Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) and having none of these services available at St James’s University Hospital.
The survey covered the experiences of those who had recently had a baby in Leeds, including visits to hospital before, during and after the birth, in order to understand how they would view and react to these proposed changes. In total, 453 people took part in the survey.
Enventure Research provided in depth analysis of the survey results, coding all open-ended responses in order to accurately understand the views and attitudes of respondents. A full research report was provided, providing clear findings and recommendations.
Residents’ opinions taken into account on odour emissions
In partnership with JBA Consulting, Enventure Research has been commissioned by the Environment Agency to undertake a resident survey on odour omissions around regulated sites in the Anglian region. Experienced researchers will be undertaking interviews door to door with residents asking about their experience of odour in an around where they live. The findings will support the Environment Agency to resolve situations more quickly when they arise and to encourage dialogue between communities and site operators. Fieldwork will commence during September.
