Wiltshire Enterprise Survey – deadline 26/1/24

Dear Parishes

We need the help of Wiltshire’s Town and Parish Councils.

What’s it about? Wiltshire Council is working with the University of the West of England (UWE) on a research project exploring the impact of Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic on patterns of working and rural enterprise in Wiltshire. When complete, the research will provide evidence, data and insights that will enable us to better address challenges around rural enterprise, help our businesses and ensure our communities benefit from inclusive and sustainable growth. We are looking forward to sharing the research with you when it is complete at the end of Summer, 2024.

How can I help? The project now needs to engage directly with Wiltshire businesses, with those that support them and with the wider community. A survey has been compiled and we are asking you to take part in the survey personally, as well as encouraging others to complete the survey too – family, friends, contacts and fellow councillors. The deadline is Friday 26th January 2024 so you’ll need to be quick – it takes about 5 to 10 minutes maximum. You really can make a significant contribution by helping us gather meaningful grass-roots feedback, especially given your direct involvement with organisations and associations involved in business and community support in Wiltshire.

What do I do next?

  1. Take the survey!  Using this link Wiltshire Enterprise Survey  or the QR code below
  1. Share the survey with others. A short introduction and survey links are included in the text below which could be included in an email, online newsletter or similar. Can you include this in any regular communication you have with your networks to encourage engagement? Can you use the attached meme on your social media channels? Would you like a virtual poster to help circulate the information?

Anything you can do to assist will be appreciated and we look forward to sharing the research report with you later this year. Remember, the survey closes on Friday 12th January 2024. Thank you.

What does work or business after the pandemic look like to you? Take part in our survey!
