What does the campaign actually involve?

We need to register details for at least 10,000 participants in 10 ‘sample areas’ across Devon and Somerset. This will give us a statistically representative view of the status quo and future needs across our region. Golley Slater has been appointed to carry out the survey for us. Leaflets are being delivered to 26,000 homes and businesses from 6th February and these will be followed up by a telephone call asking for detailed information.

We are also working with the press and media to run news updates and feature stories in local newspapers, radio and TV.
