Consultation & Engagement

Tailored expertise to meet your needs

We have a track record in delivering cost-effective quality community consultation and engagement.

We understand that your project, your needs, the resources available, timescales and the level of results or depth of the consultation required will be unique to you.

Our independent and impartial advice is highly valued by our customers.

When planning a community project its essential that you have a very clear idea of the needs of your community.

CCS has worked with many community groups to carry out effective and inclusive community consultation.  This may involve holding open days, meetings or coffee mornings or it may be a paper or online survey.  This research will then shape your project and helps you put a better case to funders to achieve success.

CCS can help you to work out the best way to carry out this consultation and can also help you to find the funds to pay for this stage of project development. We offer a service that takes you from idea through to results which includes:

  • pre-survey expert advice
  • custom questionnaire design
  • advice about printed and online surveys
  • in-house inputting service and comprehensive analysis service
  • report writing and presentation of findings

Examples of surveys include Housing Needs Surveys (covering affordable housing, housing for older people, open market and specialist housing), community consultation as part of a Neighbourhood or Community Plan, Market Research, etc. We also carry out single issue surveys, for example when a community building project is being considered to look at user groups and the wider communities needs.
