Second Resident Engagement Campaign in Basildon

Basildon Borough Council has commissioned Enventure Research to carry out a doorstepping engagement roject to support the local housing association in educating residents about correct usage of the refuse and recycling service. Enventure has previously conducted a successful doorstepping campaign on behalf of Basildon Council, which took place over June and July 2013.

 

Enventure’s trained recycling promoters will visit approximately 1,300 households within areas of low recycling participation, aiming to speak to residents from approximately 1,000 of these properties.

 

The engagement project is scheduled to begin at the end of January 2014 and will take place over a ten-day period.

Enthusiastic Team Deliver Barnet’s Large Scale Engagement Campaign

 

Enventure has successfully completed a large scale resident engagement project on behalf of Barnet London Borough Council within time and to budget.  A team of over 30 recycling promoters visited 102,000 properties in nine weeks, speaking to 41,610 residents about their new recycling and food waste scheme.   Residents were able to ask their burning questions on how the scheme worked and check what could and couldn’t be recycled.

 

Mark Robinson of Enventure commented on the successful delivery of the project, “This was one of our largest engagement projects ever.   We had some great staff working on the project who were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about recycling.  Despite the cold
weather, our teams did exceptionally well and delivered the project on time.  We hope our engagement activity will have a lasting impact on
tonnages of waste collected.”

 

A summary of the results of the campaign has been published on the Barnet London Borough Council website.

Further Consultation with Residents on the Future of Public Libraries

The West and South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Commissioning Support Unit (WSYBCSU) recently commissioned Enventure Research to conduct the analysis of the results of the Call to Action Survey, which investigated what matters to the public in terms of local health services in Wakefield.  The Call to Action Survey considered issues such as NHS spending and what constitutes high quality care.

 

The survey was administered online during November and December 2013.  Coding and in-depth analysis of responses from 378 participants was undertaken by Enventure Research, allowing key themes to be identified in order to accurately understand the views of respondents.  Enventure
Research produced an independent report which detailed the survey results and analysis.
