Recruitment for recycling volunteer scheme in Kensington & Chelsea

Western Riverside Waste Authority (WRWA) has recently appointed Enventure Research to deliver a short engagement campaign with residents of one estate located within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.


A small team of Recycling Promoters will speak to residents of the Cremorne Estate on their doorstep in the hope of encouraging them to become Recycling Volunteers for the estate. Recycling Volunteers will be tasked with encouraging and advising their neighbours to participate in the recycling scheme correctly.


The estate is comprised of approximately 300 properties, all of which will be approached over the duration of the campaign. In addition to verbal information about the Recycling Volunteer scheme, each resident will be provided with a leaflet explaining how they can get involved. Where the promotion team is unable to speak with a resident then the leaflet will be posted, ensuring that all Cremorne Estate residents are provided with information about the scheme.


GP practice merger consultation reporting for North Lincolnshire CCG

Enventure Research has recently been appointed to provide independent analysis and reporting on the responses gathered to a public consultation regarding the proposed merger of two GP practices, the Kirton Lindsey Surgery and Hawthorn Surgery, Scotter.


The proposed merger would retain all current staff and allow the continuation of services at both sites, with the proposed new practice becoming known as ‘The Kirton Lindsey and Scotter Surgery’. An application has been submitted to NHS England to formally merge the two practices, with a decision expected in 2018.


A postal and online consultation document has been made available to all patients registered at both practices to measure levels of support for the proposal and to allow the opportunity to express any concerns and raise questions about the proposed merger.


The responses to the consultation will be provided to Enventure Research for analysis purposes. An independent report will be produced which details the findings and will help inform NHS England and both North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire West CCGs in their decision making.


Enventure re-appointed to undertake 2017 Manchester Day visitor survey

Enventure Research is looking forward to working again with Manchester City Council to deliver a survey of visitors to the 2017 Manchester Day parade.


Manchester Day is an annual cultural event which brings together a diverse range of local organisations to celebrate the city’s creativity and collective pride, drawing on average 60,000 visitors to the city. More information about this year’s event can be found here.


The visitor survey measures the impact of the parade and visitors’ perceptions of the event via face-to-face surveying, conducted by a team of experienced market research interviewers. The interviewing team wear branded Manchester Day t-shirts and hand out parade information leaflets to respondents, who are approached using random sampling. Enventure Research has conducted the survey each year since 2014. The response to the survey has been very positive to date, with an average of 256 visitors interviewed each year.


Following this year’s parade, which will take place on Sunday 18th June, Enventure Research will undertake analysis of the data in order to provide Manchester City Council with a research report which details the 2017 findings and demonstrates comparisons with previous years’ surveys.


Evaluation of the 20mph speed limits in Sowerby Bridge


Calderdale Council’s Public Health department has commissioned Enventure Research to undertake an evaluation of the implementation of the 20mph speed limits in Sowerby Bridge. The evaluation will involve interviewing 500 residents throughout Sowerby Bridge in March 2017, to measure the impact of the new speed limit and evaluate what residents think about it.


Calderdale Council has a vision to make Calderdale streets safe and pleasant for all children and adults, however they travel, or wherever they live.


More information about the introduction of 20mph speed limits in Calderdale can be found here (Council website) and here (Living in Calderdale website).


Recycling communications material testing in Shropshire

Enventure Research is pleased to be working again with Shropshire Council and Veolia to deliver two focus groups with Shropshire residents to test communications material relating to the recycling scheme.


Residents living in the Shropshire area are able to recycle a wide range of materials using their recycling scheme provided by Shropshire Council and waste management company Veolia. Although the information on how and what to recycle is detailed on service leaflets produced in line with guidance published by WRAP, it is believed that some residents either misunderstand it or that the information is unclear as the recycling scheme has been used incorrectly.


In order to evaluate the current communication materials provided, two focus groups will be held with residents in Bridgnorth, led by an experienced moderator from Enventure Research. The research will explore what aspects of the current communication material work well, what could be improved, and what information residents would like to see in future communications material.


Enventure appointed to Manchester City Council Research Framework

Following a comprehensive tendering process, Enventure Research is pleased to have been appointed to Manchester City Council’s Research Framework.


The Framework provides the Council with access to a range of providers within a variety of market research specialisms, research methodologies and analytical approaches. As one of the small number of organisations successful in gaining a place, Enventure Research will be offered the opportunity to tender for any future work against this Framework via a mini-competition process.


Enventure Research has provided market research services to Manchester City Council on a number of previous occasions and is looking forward to working with the Council again in the future.
