Our Healthy Homes survey is going very well. See previous posts about the project.

Over 330 residents have already completed the Healthy Homes survey, which is a fantastic response. Thank you to everyone who has taken part to date.

The results so far indicate that many people are struggling to stay warm in winter, cannot afford the necessary upgrades needed to improve the efficiency of their homes, and/or cannot find certified local tradespeople to complete the necessary works.

Even if your home is warm and cosy, please consider filling in the the Healthy Homes survey. We want to get information on a range of housing conditions, and we are also keen to know about people’s experiences with getting hold of tradespeople, grants and advice so we can get a good picture of the difficulties of getting homes upgraded.

The Healthy Homes survey is anonymous, open to residents in any accommodation type and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.  Help us get to 400 responses by taking the survey or passing on the link to family and neighbours. The survey will close in mid-April.

If you need a paper copy, please contact our survey coordinator Ellie.

If you are involved in DIY, building, trades, contracting, architecture or other aspects of construction, please also take our survey for trades, and share the link with colleagues.
