Introduction

Thank you for being interested in this short community survey, which is designed to take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. It is most relevant to individuals living or working in and community organisations operating in the Greater Cumbernauld area.

The purpose is to understand how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected people, communities and organisations across Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and surrounding villages. The results will be used to provide vital public feedback to key agencies which are responsible for community services and pandemic recovery in the local area, including Scottish Government, North Lanarkshire Council, NHS Lanarkshire, Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), voluntary sector organisations and businesses.  

Commissioned by Scottish Government, this activity is being led by Cornerstone House Centre, an experienced charity which operates as a Community Anchor Organisation for the Greater Cumbernauld area. The survey forms part of a local partnership project entitled Cumbernauld Bridging Forward which also involves the not-for-profit organisations Cumbernauld Community Forum and Cumbernauld Poverty Action.

Your experience of living or operating through the pandemic will help to paint a picture of its impacts on local people and groups. Your thoughts about what was handled well and what lessons should be learned are important to us. Crucially, an analysis of these views will be undertaken in early 2022 and used to inform Community Planning Partners as to how they can best serve local people and communities going forward.
 
Specifically, the survey seeks to ascertain the main requirements of individuals, families and groups socially, culturally, economically and environmentally in a post-pandemic society. It also assesses to what extent the pandemic has affected quality of life and what needs to be done to accelerate community recovery.

There are no right or wrong answers to the questions. All surveys completed will contribute towards an analysis report and key recommendations. You have the option to complete this questionnaire anonymously. However, if you do provide your contact details at the end of the survey, we can keep you informed of key outcomes (including emailing the final analysis and recommendations) whilst ensuring that your personal views are fully anonymised.   

The deadline for submission of this survey is Friday 28 January 2022 at 12.00noon. If you have any further questions regarding this activity, please contact Cornerstone House Centre on 01236 739220 or email health@cornerstone-house.org.uk. Click below to proceed with the survey.
