A new survey has been launched to gauge the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Hertfordshire's community.

The county's Community Reassurance Cell has set up the online questionnaire on behalf of the Local Resilience Forum to understand the needs, challenges and aspirations of residents and groups.

Cllr Linda Haysey, leader of East Herts Council and chair of the cell, said: "Hearing from our local communities is absolutely vital so that we understand their needs now and how we can help them cope with the unpredictable nature of the Covid-19 pandemic in the future.

"We're proud of Hertfordshire's incredible community spirit as residents, businesses and community groups continue to come together and adapt. We want to know how we can best support those efforts as we all learn to live with Covid-19."

The online survey asks the public and those providing community services a series of questions to collect views about the impact of coronavirus on their lives, what support is needed and how that has changed since the start of the pandemic.

It follows a survey in 2020 which revealed mental health was the biggest concern for residents, followed by economic hardship, and how the pandemic was affecting already disadvantaged groups, including people with disabilities, BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) communities and young people with special educational needs.

The results will be used to shape the county's ongoing recovery plans, ensuring support is targeted where it is needed most.

The survey closes on Friday January 21. To take part, see www.opinionresearch.co.uk/Herts_Covid19_CIA_2021_22.
