Consult Gloucestershire - The People's Panel

Building a stronger community - together!

What is the People's Panel?

The People's  Panel is made up of Gloucestershire residents from all different backgrounds. Members of the panel are asked to give their views about Council services and issues affecting Gloucestershire.

This could be via online and postal surveys or local events.

How much time would I have to give to being a panel member?

It's up to you.! You can give as much or as little time as you want to!

What kind of things will I be asked?

In early 2016 members of the People's Panel were asked to give their views on a number of different services, plans, strategies and policies. These included:

  • The council's budget 2016/17
  • Living a healthy life in Gloucestershire
  • Support for people in vulnerable circumstances
  • The county council website

This was carried out through online surveys and invitations to attend focus groups.

How will my feedback make a difference?

All the feedback is being used to inform the final plans and strategies.

Why should I take part?
