CWSAN / COSTA Community Survey

Dear local Community Members

In these strange times we all have to look at our way of working, and CWSAN / COSTA are no different in this respect.

We want to know how you as a rural community or voluntary group are going at this time, and how we, through our delivery of the Rural Community Development Service across the Mid Ulster can deliver for you, now and into the future.

We would ask that you have a chat with some of the other Committee members, fill out the survey, highlighted in blue below and reply as soon as possible.

We appreciate that there a quite a few surveys circulating at the minute and you can see this one far enough away but if you could please complete this it will directly help you as groups working in your rural areas.

We are looking to hear from all groups, large or small, to give us the very best picture of how things are and how we can continue to deliver and design the best possible service for you in the future.

Your assistance would be most appreciated and remember, we are always here at the end of a phone if you have any queries of any kind, at any time.
