Aberdeen citizens quizzed on healthy and safe city

18/06/14

Citizens are being asked for their views on staying healthy and safe in the city of Aberdeen.

The 32nd City Voice questionnaire has been issued, covering a range of Aberdeen-focused topics including:
  •  New Psychoactive Substances (NPA), also known as "legal highs";
  •  health and wellbeing opportunities for the over-65s;
  •  physical activity undertaken each week;
  •  open space strategy;
  •  quality-of-life changes in the past two years;
  • winter maintenance services.

There are 890 contributors on the City Voice panel, who are asked to complete three questionnaires a year. The results are used to shape policy, measure performance and plan future service delivery – and to tell the service providers what they are doing right and what they could be doing better.

The City Voice is an initiative led by Community Planning Aberdeen, which brings together Aberdeen City Council, Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, NHS Grampian, Aberdeen Council of Voluntary Organisations, the University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University and North East Scotland College.

The Citizens' Panel is always looking for new members to join and allow people to make their voice heard on a wide range of issues. Anyone interested can contact the City Voice Co-ordinator at cityvoice@aberdeencity.gov.uk, tel: (01224) 522935. More information and access to the latest questionnaire is available at the Consultations page on the Aberdeen City Council website.
