Karin Smyth, MP for Bristol South, has launched her Summer Survey to find out what constituents think of the constituency and how communities can benefit going forward.
The Summer Survey is timely as it is also a chance for constituents to share how the pandemic has affected them. Be it difficulties with securing much needed services whilst social distancing or finding new ways to move around the area, Karin wants to know.
The Summer Survey will run from 26 July 2021 until 31 August 2021.
The information gathered will support Karin in being able to steer services and investment towards what constituents want. This listening exercise will focus on the following areas:
- Housing in Bristol South;
- Your views on climate change;
- Access to healthcare; and
- Employment opportunities
Karin Smyth, MP for Bristol South, said:
“This year’s Summer Survey is a chance to have your voice heard. The pandemic has completely changed how we all live and I want to know how this year has affected you. From housing to healthcare, your views matter. All too often decision makers in government fail to base their decisions on real life voices. That’s why I’m undertaking this survey: to ensure we have the evidence needed to secure positive change.
“It’s my hope that people living in south Bristol share my survey amongst friends and family so we can reach people who don’t normally engage in politics. The truest words ever said about our laws is ‘all politics is local’. I’ve been determined as your MP to make the real change we all need and that means reaching out to everyone.
“My survey will run all summer long and I hope this means everyone takes part. My Summer Survey will compliment the normal work I undertake throughout the year, which includes advice surgeries, supporting local charities and seeking forums between local and national governments.”
