St Helens Community Survey from Heseltine Institute

24 June 2022

University of Liverpool researchers have launched a survey to hear how St Helens residents feel about where they live. Working with St Helens Council, the researchers are keen to understand which local services, facilities and amenities residents use, how they access them, and what might be improved.

The research, carried out by the Heseltine Institute for Public Policy, Practice and Place, is part of a project looking at ‘community assets’ – the places and people that help local communities thrive. The results of the survey will be used by the researchers to identify things that local residents feel are particularly important about where they live.

Heseltine Institute researcher Dr Tom Arnold said:

“We’re really keen that this research can benefit the local community, so it’s important we hear from as many St Helens residents as possible. The survey only takes 5 minutes to complete, so I’d encourage the local community to get involved.”
