The data from the three previous surveys, together with ongoing community engagement and feedback has informed the development and delivery of a number of community programs. For example;

  • Advocacy for improvements to telecoms network
  • Mental health first aid
  • Mental health & wellbeing sessions
  • Pop-up recovery hubs

Further details about these and other programs can be found in the 'Recovery activities delivered in 2021-22' documents below.

Council is conducting this survey to fully understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic and the severe storm event on 9 June 2021 is having on the community. The survey will collect the views and experiences of community members 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.

Anyone 15 years or older, who lives, works, studies or has a strong connection to Yarra Ranges is encouraged to complete the survey.

Your experiences are important and you can still take part. We are looking for a broad sample of people from across Yarra Ranges to complete the survey. The surveys are all confidential and will not be connected to previous responses.
