The framework, which has been in place for the past twelve months, has been extended. Enventure Research is once again looking forward to providing Ballymena Borough Council in Northern Ireland, with further research services to support service delivery.
Enventure will have the opportunity to work with ‘Your Voice’ to produce quantitative, qualitative and engagement research
For the last ten years Norfolk has had a successful Citizens’ Panel partnership, where public sector partners have worked together to achieve value for money on their research and consultation needs. Public sector partners in Norfolk have agreed to merge Norfolk Citizens’ Panel and Your Voice to develop a shared consultation and involvement membership scheme for Norfolk that will deliver consultation, involvement and research needs in a single scheme.
The new scheme is called ‘Your Voice’ and exists to encourage local people to get involved in decision-making and other involvement.
Antrim Borough Council appointed Enventure Research to conduct a targeted, door to door, recycling awareness campaign to promote and encourage recycling within the Borough.
Throughout February and March 2013, 16,000 households were contacted by a professional team of recycling promoters, who promoted the recycling services available to residents, focusing on the food waste recycling scheme in order to maximise participation and encourage residents to recycle as much as possible. Whilst on the doorstep, recycling promoters also collected useful data from residents and took orders for any replacement recycling containers needed.
Antrim Borough Council has already taken a number of positive steps towards increasing the amount of waste recycled, and this campaign will help the council reach its targets. The campaign was funded by the Northern Ireland Rethink Waste Revenue Fund 2012/13.
