Information and advice about care and support survey


Bracknell Forest Council is currently seeking the views of residents regarding information and advice about care and support to help inform a new information and advice strategy.

Link to survey:

It’s important that the views of people who need information or advice in their work also help to shape the strategy, so please also encourage as many of your staff and volunteers to complete the survey as possible, and please share this with your networks of local groups and services too.

The consultation is open until Sunday 11 December.
