City of Nedlands joins the race to survey 10,000 Western Australians

The City of Nedlands is looking forward to seeing the results of the MARKYT Community Resilience Scorecard survey aimed at mapping the resilience of the Nedlands community, evaluating local government performance and identifying the community’s needs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is hoped the results from the survey will help the City gain insights into how the community is faring in regard to health, social relationships and work capacities, and what more the City can do to support the community during the COVID-19 recovery phase.

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, as well as several Western Australian Local Governments, are collaborating to create timely and relevant information and would like to capture the sentiment of 10,000 residents across Western Australia.  

The Scorecard is supported by the Local Government Professionals WA, the peak representative body of local government employees, that recognises the need for legitimate, comprehensive information on which to base services for the future.

Western Australian consultancy CATALYSE is providing the workforce to conduct the survey.  

According to CATALYSE Pty Ltd, communities around the State are showing their resilience with 8 in 10 residents rating their general health as ‘good or better’ and 8 in 10 respondents indicating their social relationships are ‘good or better’.  Most are feeling ‘hopeful and enthusiastic’’ about the future.
