Getting Our Voice Heard

Getting Our Voice Heard

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? We think the Committee should focus on this because we do not feel that we are listened to. The Council consultation but does not listen to us. It uses consultations to tell people what they are going to do. Like the recent high street consultation. Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? Feeling heard is important to community wellbeing.

Points

The laws need to be changed for the working class.

Listening to 'all' voices on important issues

People in their Community know what they need, they would also like to know what else is available and what choices they have. They also need to have their views listened too before having others impose what they think they need Reducing wasted time and money.

People need to feel they can influence and change things. Consultations are often sprung on Communities, groups and individual. People can feel they have things done to them rather than done in partnership with them. Well run in depth consultations can reduce wrong plans, waste of money and lack of understanding on both sides.
