Supporting Gloucestershire’s Community Reward Incentive Scheme

Gloucestershire Waste Partnership has recently been successful in securing funding from Defra’s Household Reward and Recognition Fund to trial an incentive scheme to increase recycling.
Gloucestershire scheme, called Community Reward Incentive Scheme (CRIS), will be trialled in Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud and
Tewkesbury and will start in March 2012 and finish in November 2012.


Enventure has been commissioned to undertake the research and evaluation part of the project, which has started with a residents survey, participation monitoring and focus groups.  Findings from the first phase of research will help develop the project.  Early 2013, the project will be evaluated using the same research approach.


Commenting on the recent win, Mark Robinson of Enventure said
“We are really excited to be working on one of the projects funded through
Defra’s Household Reward and Recognition Fund and to be working with the
Partnership once again.  This project will be a really interesting project
to work on and will provide some interesting insight into how community
incentives will help increase recycling levels.

Leeds Museums and Galleries Visitor Survey

has recently been commissioned to once again work with Leeds City Council to
carry out a visitor survey at all its museums and galleries. It has been four
years since the last visitor survey, and in that time Leeds has acquired new
sites – Leeds City Museum and the Discovery Centre – making this piece of
research vital to discover who customers are and what their impressions and
experience are of the service they receive.

is carrying out exit interviews with visitors at eight museums and galleries
which, in total, receive almost 800,000 visitors each year. Random sampling
will be employed to ensure a representative sample of visitors is achieved.

The information gained from this research will be used
by Leeds City Council to help them improve the museum service, enable greater
understanding of who visitors are and their motivation to visit, grow visitor
numbers, attract ‘harder to reach’ audiences and tailor marketing planning and
promotion to target audiences.
