Wandsworth Council is running a major survey into how the Coronavirus Pandemic has affected the borough.

The survey asks about what sort of support Wandsworth residents accessed during the lockdown or still need now, how they are receiving information about the pandemic and its impact locally, what their concerns are and how they feel about the future.

It also asks what people think about the council’s response to the pandemic.

The results will enable the council to build a better picture of the virus’s impact on the borough and enable it to target support to where it is most needed.

Leader of the council Cllr Ravi Govindia said: “We know that the last few months have been very difficult for everyone, and all our lives have been significantly affected.

“During the lockdown we focused on helping the borough’s most vulnerable people, setting up an emergency contact hub and food depot and working closely with the voluntary sector, as well as providing council tax support to the borough’s most hard-up families. We also made it a priority to support our local businesses.

“Now, as we develop our Smart Growth recovery plan, we want to make sure we continue to target our support to the people and sectors of our society who need it most. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts so that you can help shape our work over the coming months.”

Take the survey online by July 19.
