People who complete Wolverhampton’s biggest ever health and lifestyle survey can claim a free £5 voucher to spend in one of the city’s 7 community shops.

The City Lifestyle Survey, commissioned by the City of Wolverhampton Council, is gathering information about the lifestyle choices people make, which will enable the council and other organisations to make even more informed decisions about services that could improve the health of the local population.

Through the short survey, available at City Lifestyle Survey, residents can share their thoughts and experiences on a range of issues that might affect their lifestyle, including access to GPs, physical activity, alcohol consumption and vaccinations.

Their feedback will be used to plan services in Wolverhampton and help measure the effectiveness of these in the future. Reponses are anonymous, and the closing date for comments is Tuesday 14 February, 2023.

To thank people for their time, everyone who completes the survey will be able to claim a free £5 voucher which can be spent in one of Wolverhampton’s 7 community shops – Wolves Waste Not at Gatis Community Space, St Chads & St Marks Church in Pennfields, Big Venture Community Shop, Bilston Support Network Community Shop, Stratton Street Community Shop, Low Hill Community Shop and Eastfield Community Shop. Alternatively, it can be used at selected barbers and hairdressers.

Meanwhile, everyone who completes the survey can also choose from a list of community organisations and charities which will receive an added financial incentive of £2 per completed survey.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "This large scale survey will provide us with reliable and valuable intelligence about the health and wellbeing of the people of Wolverhampton which, in turn, will give the council and other organisations across the city the information they need to make the right decisions for the local population.

"More than 4,400 people have already had their say and, by taking a few minutes to complete the survey, you will help build up a clearer picture of the health and wellbeing of the people of Wolverhampton.

“As a thank you, we are offering everyone who completes the survey a free £5 voucher to spend in their local community shop or selected hairdressers, and also giving them the opportunity to select a local good cause which will receive a £2 donation on their behalf.

“So, if you haven’t already had your say, please do so as soon as possible because your views matter.”
