Talkabout citizens' panel

We're currently updating Talkabout, our citizens' panel, which is one of the ways people can influence what happens in York, by giving us their feedback and views.

Current consultations


We're working hard to support communities in York, ensuring residents are getting the benefits and financial support they’re entitled to. As part of this, we're operating in partnership with local residents to grow a number of community hubs across the city.

To find out how residents are benefitting and what we can do to help even more, we are asking you to take part in a short survey.

Through this, we want to:

  • find out how well known the project is
  • gather information on the impact of the project
  • learn how we can improve our work

The information you submit will be used as part of a report. Find out more about 4CommunityGrowthYork.

Everyone is invited to participate in the 4CommunityGrowthYork Participant Survey, but we are particularly interested in responses from residents in:

You can find out which ward you live in by using the ward map on our wards in York page, which can be searched by postcode or street name.

York Suicide Safer Community Strategy

Suicide is a serious social and public health issue. Every year too many York residents take their own life and many more people are deeply affected by the loss of a loved one, friend or colleague through suicide.

We have been working to reduce suicide and the harm and negative impact associated with suicide experienced by those who live, work in and are connected to York.

We are pleased to present the Draft Suicide Safer Community Strategy for York, through which we aim to achieve the Health and Wellbeing Board’s ambition to make the city a Suicide Safer Community. The local Health and Wellbeing Board has approved our draft strategy for public consultation in order to seek your views about its content and our ambitions to help reduce suicide in the city.

We would like you to provide feedback on our draft Suicide Safer Community strategy. We aim to take into consideration all comments and feedback we receive and to build these into a final version of our strategy.

We plan to introduce our strategy at our forthcoming Suicide Prevention Conference on 20 September 2018.

Consultation closes at midnight on Wednesday 22 August 2018
