Community wellbeing telephone survey We are currently carrying out a survey to understand the current mental and physical wellbeing of our communities and assess the impact of the coronavirus (COIVD-19) on resident’s lives. DJS Research Ltd have been commissioned to carry out the survey on our behalf. They will be contacting 1100 residents at random by telephone to collect detailed information about their current circumstances and experiences. The survey is made up of 55 questions and takes no more than 20 minutes to complete. Residents will only be asked for their full name and address at the end of the survey if they give their consent to take part in future research. This consent can be withdrawn at any time. DJS Research will not ask people for financial information or bank details.

The results of the survey will be published on the Understanding Herefordshire website later this year and will be used by the council to identify trends and areas for attention in local communities. For more information please visit our wellbeing survey webpage. The survey will end on 28 February.

WISH News January 2021
Stay well this winter


This year, it’s more important than ever for us all to try and look after our health and wellbeing. The healthier we are, the more likely we are to beat viruses like flu and Covid-19.
There’s a few simple steps we can take to look after our health, during the winter months…

  • Have your flu vaccination, especially if you receive a letter from your GP, because you're in a high risk group
  • Keep your home heated to at least 18°C (65°F)
  • Keep active at home with virtual exercise classes
  • If you start to feel unwell, call NHS 111 or visit www.111.nhs.uk (24/7)

  • Don’t forget to look out for elderly relatives or neighbours, who may need a little extra help and support this winter.

    For more top tips and support, visit www.wisherefordshire.org/winter and for virtual exercises and activities, visit www.wisherefordshire.org/stayingathome.

    Keep Herefordshire Warm (KHW) are pleased to be able to offer emergency fuel vouchers again for any of their service users who have been impacted by the COVID 19 crisis. The fuel vouchers are offered to households with pre-payment meters. The voucher value is £28 for a single resident or £49 for a family. Anyone on a pre-payment meter that is struggling now can be referred. Please contact us at fuelvouchers@severnwye.org.uk to be sent a secure webform referral link for your organisation.

    We have been undertaking engagement activity with a wide range of stakeholders to develop a new carers strategy for Herefordshire. As part of this engagement work we are now carrying out a public survey for members of the public who are unpaid carers to people residing in Herefordshire. The most important findings from the survey will be included in the revised carers strategy for Herefordshire. Once completed in late 2021 the carers strategy for Herefordshire will be available on the Herefordshire Council website. We would very much appreciate is you could promote this survey and share the link with your networks.
