Welcome to the Connect Quick Poll! The topic changes every fortnight, and we use the results in a variety of ways. Some will be for fun, others will be topical, and some are to help us make decisions. All, in some way, will influence developments and thinking, both short and long term. 

This weeks poll looks at how you feel about developing your knowledge, skills and confidence so you can achieve your goals and aspirations. We are working closely with a number of customers, community members and staff as part of a Skills development working group to gather research and ideas that will benefit the progression of people like yourselves and others with sight loss. In order to improve and develop this area of work, it is incredibly important to gather your thoughts so we can get a wider perspective on this topic.

Please note that this is part 1 of 2 polls on the same topic. Look out for next weeks poll which will help us delve deeper into your answers from this poll.
