Statistics and stories - the advantages of community research
Taz Virdee from Heston West shares what his area has learned from community research, and how a new toolkit from ARVAC can help your area get started.
What we were looking for
“We wanted to check if our mission was still accurate. The previous research we had was a few years old and possibly outdated and we needed to go back and consult to see if our mission is still what our community wants and needs.
We also wanted to find out what people thought our legacy should be. We found out that they were keen for us to carry on, and used workshops to find out what we’re already doing that people liked and what they wanted us to focus on in the future. We now know that arts and health and wellbeing are really important.
