MOOL Community Survey for people who have moved to the area.

Massive Outpouring of Love (MOOL) are interested in hearing your views, experiences and information needs, so we can find out more about what it is like to move to Dumfries and Galloway from other parts of the world. 

This survey is completely anonymous, so please answer as honestly as you can.  The information we collect will help us to make our communities stronger and to make sure that we are able to live happily together, where all of our needs are met, regardless of where we come from.
