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.

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.
