Clacks 1000 - Citizens' Panel

Clacks 1000 - Citizens' Panel

Clackmannanshire AllianceThe Clackmannanshire Community Planning Partnership recognises that developing and delivering services which meet local needs requires effective and genuine community engagement. We ensure that the views of the most disadvantaged communities are heard to help deliver solutions that contribute to sustainable community regeneration.

An important part of the Partnership's strategy for effective community consultation has been to develop a Citizens' Panel of 1,000 members who are broadly representative of the adult population of Clackmannanshire. The Panel stands at more than 1,000 members, with around one third in the regeneration areas and two thirds in the rest of Clackmannanshire.

The panel was recruited by sending a postal questionnaire to a random sample of residents drawn from the electoral register. Around two postal surveys per year will be carried out and panel members may also be involved in further survey work such as focus groups. Panel research will be managed on behalf of the Alliance by Hexagon Research & Consulting.
