The rising cost of living is continuing to have a huge impact on residents in the city. In August and September 2023 we spoke to over 2,000 residents to help us better understand how they are being affected and how they are feeling. We also asked where residents go for support if they are struggling, as we know this is a priority for everyone, as well as asking about usage of council and NHS services.

We were overwhelmed with the generous response from residents, we want to say a huge thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. The results of the survey will help the council and its partners to make plans and develop services both to meet the needs of local people now and in the future.
