The Shire of Esperance is participating in a MARKYT Community Resilience Scorecard survey with the aim of mapping community resilience, local government performance, and community needs in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Results from the survey will aid local leaders and decision makers to better understand how their communities are coping in relation to health, social relationships and work capacities, and what local governments need to prioritise to best support their communities during the recovery phase.
The unique study will see the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, and 139 Western Australian Local Governments, collaborating together in order to access timely and relevant information.
Esperance Shire President and Local Recovery Committee Chair Ian Mickel said he was excited to receive the input from the Esperance community.
“The more people who complete the survey the better the information will be, not just for the whole of WA, but for us here in Esperance too,” he said.
“The results will help by guiding our Local Recovery Committee to better understand the thoughts and feelings of those who are struggling due to the effects of COVID-19 allowing us to put in place programs and allocate funding to try to help those people out.”
The Shire of Esperance will be promoting the Community Resilience Scorecard survey through their website and various social media channels and will remain open until 3 July 2020 to all residents aged 18 years and older.
Take part in the MARKYT Community Resilience Scorecard survey today.
