Welcome

Thanks for being part of our community survey.  The purpose of the survey is to find out what local people identify as the strengths and challenges facing the community located in Papanui and the surrounding neighbourhoods. Anyone living in, or regularly participating in, Papanui and the surrounding neighbourhoods is welcome to complete the survey. Participation in the community or neighbourhood might refer to local sports groups, community groups, facilities, churches, schools, parks, whatever is relevant to you.  We really want to hear what’s important to you!

This research is being undertaken by the Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust and Northgate Community Services Trust and the survey has been approved by both organisations. The survey is anonymous and your personal information will not be used or identified in any published reports. When you complete the survey you will be given a reference number so that we can identify your answers if you choose to withdraw at any point. You have the right to withdraw from the research up until the results are published by contacting the research team detailed below.

Participation in the survey is entirely voluntary and there are no obligations for further involvement unless you choose to participate in the prize draw or a future focus group. You may complete the survey on your own and return it to the person who gave it to you. If you would like any assistance with the survey then please ask and we will be happy to help.

Everyone who completes a survey also has the opportunity to join a prize draw for a $100 Countdown voucher. If you would like to go into the draw then fill out your contact information at the end. Your details will be kept separate from your survey answers to maintain your confidentiality. The results of the draw will be notified to participants on June 1st 2018.

Following the completion of the survey there is also an opportunity to join a one hour focus group to discuss the findings and possible new community initiatives. There will be a further prize draw for people who join a focus group. If you are interested in the results of the survey and participating in a focus group, please provide your details at the end of the survey and we will contact you with further details. Your contact information will be kept separate from your survey answers to maintain your confidentiality. The results of the survey will be published in a report to the board members of Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust and Northgate Community Services Trust and made available to anyone on request by October 2018.

If you have any questions about this research please contact Damian Ardell, Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust Community Worker (03 352 4227 or papbapfreedom@gmail.com) or Dominic Chilvers, Northgate Community Services Trust Community Development Coordinator (03 375 0850 or dominic@northgatetrust.co.nz).
