LEICESTER people are being asked to share their health and wellbeing needs with public health professionals for a new survey called How are you, Leicester?
The simple form will ask questions about what is important to individuals and their communities when it comes to health and wellbeing needs. The survey will be available online, or community organisations can arrange for a visit from the city council’s public health community facilitators (pictured), who will help them to take part.
Assistant city mayor for health Cllr Vi Dempster said: “The last two years have been challenging for everyone, but for the people of Leicester they have been especially hard. That’s why we are asking: ‘How are you, Leicester?’ and inviting people to take part in a big health conversation about how they are feeling right now.
“We want to hear from residents from across our diverse communities about whatever health and wellbeing issues are important to them. This could be anything from how covid has affected you and your community to other health needs or concerns that they feel have had to take a back seat during the pandemic.
“Coronavirus has been, and still is, a priority but we haven’t forgotten that your other health and wellbeing needs are important. So, how are you, and what matters to you most right now?
“We know that some communities experience poorer health and wellbeing than others. By completing the questionnaire, you can be a voice for your community, and help us to understand what the key issues are for the people of Leicester.”
Community organisations can arrange a survey session with the team by emailing email@example.com
