South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation (SYCF) is conducting it’s annual survey into community needs and calling on local people in South Yorkshire to take part and give their opinions.

The charity’s 2018 Vital Signs survey is encouraging as many participants as possible, as locals know best what the needs are in the community they live in.

Last year’s report drew attention to everyday issues affecting local people, to showcase work that is already being done in South Yorkshire and to raise awareness, so more targeted efforts can be made to tackle these problems.

Thanks to the contribution of 600 participants in last year’s survey alongside local and national statistics the report was able to give a well-rounded picture of the state of South Yorkshire.

These findings have enabled the charity, which distributes funding to community groups and charities, to award grants to the most urgent areas of need and is working in line with what local communities want for their area.

Research Officer at SYCF, Sonia Bielaszewska said:
“The personal views we are calling for are invaluable to us and we are really grateful to everyone who takes the time to fill in the survey, which takes no longer than five minutes to complete!”
