Social needs, mission and outreach
Please help us build a picture of social action in the diocese

Advice for completing the survey
  • Please refer to the guidance note which was attached to the email from Bishop Patrick to your parish priest.
  • This questionnaire will take 5-10 minutes to complete, but will require some research beforehand.  Please note that it must be completed in one sitting. 
  • You will hopefully have received a text version of the questionnaire, attached to the email inviting your parish priest to participate in this survey.  You may find it helpful to print it out and use it to gather information from parishioners.
  • Please gain the consent of individuals whose personal details are requested, if those details are not already in the public domain.
  • If you have any queries, please email Paul Bodenham, Justice and Peace Fieldworker, in the first instance, or call him on 07470 907656.
  • We look forward to hearing from you by Palm Sunday, 14 April 2019.  Many thanks for your response: we'll publish the findings by the end of June 2019.
