Stress highlighted as a main priority for East Riding residents
22nd May 2017
As part of the consultation HWERY spoke with 1156 people across the East Riding. The Residents we spoke to had to place one token into one of ten jars all of which represented different health and social care priorities. From this consultation HWERY identified the key priorities of not only the overall population but 5 different age groups. These age groups included:
16 – 25
26 – 45
46 – 65
The report provides a comprehensive breakdown of all the priorities and the priorities according to age demographic.
“This piece of work is about highlighting the needs of the public. Not only is it important that we demonstrate the priorities of the wider East Riding community, but breaking down the priorities by age group is equally important because health and social care needs differ as people transition through life. This report will allow us to inform the professional stakeholders we work with about the needs of the East Riding community” Delivery Manager, Matthew Fawcett
The priorities report will help shape the work HWERY do over the next twelve months by taking into account the themes from this piece of work.
About the opportunity
As a volunteer surveyor, you will be positioned at locations around Flamborough Head and Filey Brigg throughout the busy tourist season. You will be recording any recreational activities you see, particularly noting whether the seabirds respond to human presence. You will be assigned 4 locations (which will need to be surveyed for one hour each) and we ask that volunteers commit at least one day a week to this project.
Are you passionate about protecting marine wildlife? Do you have a special interest in whales, dolphins, porpoises? Could you help us to learn more about Yorkshire’s cetacean populations by regularly carrying out surveys?
