This research will be used to help government authorities at all levels to offer more tailored support to people moving from overseas and from other parts of Australia. Information on factors such as how long people choose to stay in a given area, their age, cultural background, industry of employment and level of education, can all be used to provide more tailored services to local residents. Even if you moved into the City of Whittlesea from another suburb in Melbourne, your participation in the survey will still be valuable to help us better understand the experiences and needs of the local community.

Respondents who complete the survey may choose to enter the draw to win a Westfield gift voucher. Simply provide your contact details at the end of the survey to be eligible.

This survey will take approximately fifteen minutes to complete. Any personal details (including those of prize draw participants) will be kept confidential, and NOT be used to identify any household or individual. Respondents under the age of 18 should seek a parent or guardian’s consent before taking part in this survey.
