ActiveWestminster’s newly developed Active Communities Survey launches this week, following the free-to-attend, bi-annual ActiveWestminster Weekend that saw leisure centres open their doors for people to attend activity sessions for free.
The survey has been designed to help build a better understanding of how members of the Westminster community engage in physical activity, leisure and/or sport within the City.
The survey is launching after people across the nation have experienced some sort of disruption to their usual routines in various areas of their lives, including their levels of physical activity. It is hoped that participants who complete the survey will help the council to better tailor the support and resources it provides towards play, physical activity, leisure and sport to the needs of the community.
Made up of 8 sections, it should take approximately 15-20 minutes for participants to complete the survey. Questions in the survey ask participants to share their levels of physical activity before, during and after the pandemic as well as the types of activity they enjoy doing most and whether or not they face any barriers to participantion.
The survey is open to all Westminster residents over the age of 16, including those with no fixed abode and should also be completed by those who work, study or regularly visit and make use of Westminster’s public facilities. Participants who complete the survey can opt-in to the prize draw to win free activity passes to use at any seven of Westminster’s leisure centres. Paper copies of the survey can be requested via the ActiveWestminster contact page.
