How Connected Are You?' Survey Report Published.

Having identified a need to find out from local people how connected they feel and why, Healthwatch Somerset designed the ‘How Connected Are You?’ survey. The survey was released both online and distributed via paper copies to various groups and services within Somerset.

They have now put together a report on the results of the survey.

Key findings:

An equal amount of those completing the survey identified as not being at all connected with family, friends and their community, as those who identified as being extremely well connected.

These results were fairly evenly split between those who live in rural locations, and those who live in urban or sub-urban areas. This suggests that living in an urban or rural location does not obviously relate to how connected people feel.
