Welcome to Connected Communities Collaborating Organisations' Survey

Dear Community Partners,

AHRC have funded me to work with Keri Facer and George McKay to try to better understand the CC programme. I am currently conducting interviews with project teams around the country. These interviews have identified themes which we would like to explore with participants in the whole programme through this survey.

The surveys will take around 15 minutes and we’d very much appreciate you taking a moment to fill it in for each of the CC projects you have been involved with. This survey is designed to be answered by Collaborating Organisations (i.e. community partners and all non-academic collaborators involved in CC projects). We’re looking for responses from as many people involved in the CC programme as possible so please forward a link to this survey to any other community partners that have participated in or worked on the CC project with you.

We also have a separate Academics’ Survey that has been sent to the academics on the programme, there is a link to this here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CC-Academic

The aim of the survey is to help us really understand how Connected Communities is working and try to inform the future development of the programme.

As an added incentive – there will be a prize draw to win £200 worth of book tokens that everyone sending in a completed survey can be entered into. Please spread the word!

Thank you for your help,
Bryony

NB throughout this survey the term ‘collaborating organisation’ is used to refer to all non-academic collaborators, community partners and individual artists or consultants involved in CC projects

If you have any questions or you would like a large text version of either survey please contact: Bryony.Enright@bristol.ac.uk. Alternatively, if you would prefer to fill this survey in via a Word document please email Bryony and she will send you one.

A note on anonymity of data:

Individual responses will be kept confidential and will only be seen by Keri, Bryony and administrative staff at the University of Bristol and will not be made available in public or to funding bodies. We will put all responses together and anonymise these by using survey codes for individual responses. This anonymised data will be publicly available and will be stored in appropriate data archives. Our analysis and results will be made available in academic and public outputs but individual responses will not be used. Responses will not influence the funding of your project in anyway.
