Our 2022-2023 Community Survey Results and Findings.

Updated: 4 days ago

Your feedback is vital to us, as it informs everything we do. We always want to ensure we are serving our communities in a way that is both authentic and impactful. Take a look at what we've learnt from our community survey this year!

Thank you to every single person who took part in our community survey. We're really excited for the year ahead and using this feedback to inform our work going forward. We plan to cover a broad range of topics throughout the year, with a particular focus on ensuring all corners of our global community feel heard and supported. With these insights, we hope to identify what we are already doing well, but also actively make continuous improvements in certain areas too.


*Our 2023 Community Action plan to be published in the coming weeks.*
