The Here for You Partnership is preparing to launch a community survey in the Blue Toon.

‘Your Neighbourhood Survey’ will complement the recently-completed Peterhead Town Centre survey undertaken by the Buchan Local Community Planning Group.

The Neighbourhood Survey will delve deeper and ask questions about how residents feel about their immediate area, health and wellbeing, education and training, employment and crime and community safety.

Simon Bedford, Here For You social regeneration officer, explained: “We would also like to know whether residents are aware of local support organisations and how we can improve future employability and family welfare support.

“Evidence collected will inform the development of sustainable projects for short to long term support that focus on social regeneration of the neighbourhoods that have the greatest impact on education/skills, economic and health outcomes, ultimately leading to the long term sustainability and wellbeing of communities.”

Local volunteers will be undertaking door-to-door surveys and if you are not at home a survey will be posted through your letterbox.

Once filled in you can deposit the completed survey at one of the handy drop boxes near you at the following locations:

2Reuse at Berryden Road, Peterhead Library, The Trading Post on Marischal Street, Arbuthnot House, The Learning House at Slains Court, and the Hotspot on Kirk Street.

Alternatively, you can complete the survey online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/Your_Neighbourhood_Survey.

Feedback from this survey will be available once the information has been collated in March/April.

All of the information provided will remain confidential and the survey is available in other languages or formats on request.

The Here For You Partnership is a joint initiative between Peterhead Projects and Fraserburgh Development Trust funded by Fairer Scotland.
