London for All annual survey 2013/14

‘London for All’ is a London Councils’ funded project to capacity build London’s voluntary and community sector.

The partnership project, led by London Voluntary Service Council, offers insight and learning, plus understanding of the practical application of such expertise. The other partners are Race on the Agenda, Women’s Resource Centre, HEAR and Lasa.

‘London for All’ can help your organisation strengthen its knowledge and skills, work more effectively and efficiently, deliver more accessible services and better support service users

We are surveying your organisation because you have either accessed a specific service such as a training event run by any of the five partners or received a news bulletin from us.

The project has been going since April 2013 and this survey is to find out what you think of ‘London for All’ so far so that we can evaluate our service to you and develop the service to meet your needs.

Please take 15 minutes to give us your feedback and at the end please leave your email address if you would like to be entered into a prize draw to win £50 John Lewis vouchers.

Access the survey here. Deadline for responses is Friday January 31st.

In relation to all the questions please think of your experience of accessing any of our services i.e. as a result of attending a training course, a workshop, a conference or benefiting from any other activity delivered through 'London for All' by any of the partners.

More information on 'London for All' is available here.
