Anyone can self-refer, I can accept secure email referrals via [email protected] or you can contact me direct on my mobile - 07808 736449.

Shropshire Great Outdoors Annual Public Survey 2019-2020

This is a visitors survey.

The Shropshire Outdoor Partnerships Service is the part of Shropshire Council that maintains and develops recreational access, conserves and enhances the natural environment and encourages people to improve their well-being by being active outdoors.

The service maintains and protects public rights of way, country parks, countryside and heritage sites, greenspaces and play areas, and supports the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership.

Working with local communities across Shropshire, our priorities are to conserve and enhance the natural environment, improve people’s health and wellbeing and support the local tourism economy.

About this survey:

The survey includes questions about the outdoor facilities and activities you make use of, how you obtain information, any access barriers you may face and how satisfied you are with the services provided. Undertaking the survey each year allows Shropshire Council to understand how things are changing and where future actions should be prioritised. You can find a short summary of the 2019 survey https://shropshire.gov.uk/media/14493/outdoor-rec-survey-201819.pdf

The survey also provides information to support the delivery of Shropshire’s Great Outdoors Strategy 2018-28. The strategy sets out how Shropshire Council and its partners aim to conserve and enhance the natural environment, improve people’s health and wellbeing and support the local tourism economy. It sets out the strategic direction for the management and development of publicly accessible greenspace, rights of way and other outdoor access. The strategy fulfils the statutory requirement of a rights of way improvement plan but broadens the remit to deliver across multiple policy areas and to integrate activity across local authority services and partner organisations. It provides a way of inspiring collective action to improve health, prosperity and happiness by cherishing Shropshire’s great outdoors.

Please take the time to complete the questionnaire which you can access by clicking on the “How to get involved tab” at the top of the page.

We’d like to hear from you, even if you don’t use rights of way, parks, play areas or countryside sites, so we can understand what the barriers to participation are.

If you have any comments about the engagement work undertaken by Outdoor Partnerships, please email: [email protected]

Are you a Volunteer?

Do you volunteer for to help us with events, service on the Management Committee of Shropshire Disability Network or a team member of Safe Place Shropshire? May be you volunteer for another charitable organisation or lother organisation ie Local Hospital, Police etc.

Shropshire and Telford STP (Sustainability and Transformation Plan) has received some money to work up a bid to NHS England to develop an integrated volunteering programme (this was discussed at a VSHSCF meeting but things have moved on quite a bit since then). This will be an agenda item for the next VSHSCF meeting if you are interested in finding out more.
 
The STP has put the VCS at the heart of this and Shropshire Infrastructure Partnership has been working with the steering group to progress things on behalf of the sector. Karen Higgins (known to many of you I’m sure) has been appointed to do the bulk of the development work and as part of this, she has constructed a survey to gather evidence of the current activity of volunteers in Shropshire and Telford.
 
If you volunteer, please would you take a few minutes to complete this important survey. The average length of time taken so far by respondents is 6 minutes so it’s not onerous and its completely confidential but will provide an interesting picture of what volunteering in Shropshire looks like, regardless of the outcome of the bid. Only by taking part will we get responses we hope for (hundreds) and you can help do that..
