Welcome to the BCB survey. It will take around fourteen minutes to complete, depending on the answers you provide.
 
Please note that all of your answers are entirely confidential. Your views will be reported, mixed-in with others. We will fully protect your rights under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations).
 
We started the Better Connected Beaconsfield project in November 2018 and founded it as a Charity in October 2019. The Charity's broad aim is to improve wellness in the community and also tackle social isolation and loneliness. In mid-March this year we came together with others to help support the local response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
 
In particular, we have worked closely with the Beaconsfield Rugby Club, One Can Trust, GP Surgeries, Pyramid pharmacy, St. Thomas' Church, Beaconsfield Advisory Centre and Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Tesco and Local Authorities at this time of crisis. 
 
We have together delivered the following free services during the COVID pandemic:

An information website &  Facebook page,
A telephone helpline,
A prescription delivery service,
A network of buddy volunteers who shop, run errands.
A Listening ear – for those needing a friendly or confidential chat in what can be anxious times.
A Pop-Up Larder and food donation collection service to support those struggling financially.

This short survey will help us know the needs of our community in the long term (beyond COVID) that would be of added benefit and of interest to you and other residents.

We would like to hear from everyone as your responses will help shape our priorities.
