How has COVID-19 impacted our community? Complete a short survey
The Greater Bendigo COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Committee, chaired by Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke, has launched a community survey to measure residents’ views about the impact of COVID-19 locally.
The quick 14-question survey aims to capture data around local issues, needs and future opportunities to provide support.
Survey responses will inform the continued development of a Relief and Recovery Plan for Greater Bendigo, which is an evolving document that is designed to adapt to meet community need.
Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke said while the committee had a good understanding of the broad impact of COVID-19 locally, insight into individual opinions and experiences would ensure a more targeted approach to helping the community recover.
“We need to hear from as many people as possible to understand what more can be done to get our community through this pandemic,” Cr O’Rourke said.
“We want to know what our residents see as the greatest issues going forward, where the biggest impacts have been, where extra effort in responding still needs to be made, and what we should continue doing.
“The survey does not currently have an end date and you can participate anonymously. It is important that we collect this data over the coming weeks and months as recovery is a marathon effort, not a sprint.”
The Greater Bendigo COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Committee includes representatives from Bendigo Health, Victoria Police, Haven; Home, Safe, Bendigo Community Health Services, Bendigo Foodshare, Goldfields Library Corporation, Be.Bendigo, Bendigo Bank, Department of Education and Training, ABC Central Victoria and the City of Greater Bendigo.
