Why do we need a survey?

To fully understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the community, along with the severe storm event on 9 June 2021, Council is conducting a survey to collect the views and experiences of community members. This survey will be used to monitor and evaluate the recovery of the Yarra Ranges community over the next 12 months and beyond.

Results from this survey will be used to monitor the effectiveness of Pandemic and Storm Event Recovery Programs being implemented now and over the next few years. Council has committed funds to help drive recovery in the community. The information gathered through this survey will ensure that these funds are directed to activities and programs that support those most impacted by the pandemic and storm event.

To ensure regular feedback is gathered the survey will be conducted three times a year.

The survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete and is completely confidential.
