Community Engagement and Information
Community Engagement and Information Strategy underpins the whole Locality Plan for Govanhill, providing insights and direction on how to effectively engage with and inform our diverse communities about local services, events, and developments.
Community Engagement and Information Strategy – initial results of community survey
In the first quarter of 2021, we conducted a community survey to inform the Community Engagement and Information strategy. The survey looked at how the people of Govanhill access information and connect with each other, and how they feel about making decisions for their neighbourhood. The survey was developed with the support of partners from the NHS and GCC, based on the ideas shared by Govanhill residents during the process of community conversations held in 2018 by GCDT.
We would like to thank everyone who participated and shared their views.
Below are the basic results of the survey. Further analysis will be conducted by a working group.

Most of the people from the groups specified in the survey said they felt welcome and included in Govanhill. Some people provided additional comments which will be released in the wider report.

Improving access to information
Access to information is key to community engagement and empowerment. Below is a breakdown of responses to proposed solutions to make information more accessible to residents. These solutions were based on community conversations and the input of local staff.
These are the basic results of the survey. The next stage of the process is to form a working group to analyse the feedback received from the community, so that a draft of the Community Engagement and Information strand of the Locality Plan can be developed.
