Have your say
One Newport PSB is committed to actively seeking the views and opinions of residents about all policies and decisions made, and about how we can make improvements in the future.
To support the PSB and its partners to take a joined-up approach to engagement and to encourage local communities to take part, a One Newport Engagement & Participation Strategy had been produced.
Involve Newport Citizens Panel
Involve Newport is the name for a panel of Newport residents who receive regular surveys with the aim to represent the views and opinions of the people within the city. The panel was established by Newport City Council in 2002 and is now used jointly with the council's partners through One Newport. If members of the partnership would like to include any questions in any of the panel surveys please email.
The aim of the panel is to provide a platform through which residents' views on local services can be accurately gauged. It also gives us the opportunity to understand why people’s views are changing and provide opportunities for more focussed research about specific services.
The panel currently has around 700 members and anyone living in Newport has the opportunity to join, including young people. Members are sent around four questions each year during Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter and are asked for their opinions and suggestions on current services affecting the city and its residents.
If you wish to apply to join the panel please complete the online application form.
Topics found within recent panels have included: Perception of Newport; Safety in Newport; Support Service for People Aged 55+; Housing Options for Older People; Regional Area Plan; South Wales Fire & Rescue Service; Opportunities to use Welsh Socially; Rogerstone Community Council – Canal; Health Services; Explore Newport Market; Newport Transporter Bridge; and Evening & Night Time Economy.
Feedback is provided to members of the Panel twice a year in the form of a newsletter. Below are copies of the most recent newsletters:

The information collected from each survey is used to support and develop policy and improve services. Results can sometimes be reported in the local media, council and partner organisation publications and press releases, although all responses are treated anonymously.
What you told us
A number of consultations with the public have taken place to support the work of the PSB.
During 2016 to support the Local Assessment of Well-being development we carried out public engagement, which resulted in 397 long surveys and 662 short surveys returned and analysed.
