SSRG & LARIA Survey: Supporting Research, Intelligence and Policy in the Public Sector

I would like to invite you to take part in a new survey being carried out by the Social Services Research Group (SSRG) and Local Area Research and Intelligence Association (LARIA). The results will help understand the support needed by research, intelligence and policy professionals in the public sector – in particular, the role of professional bodies such as LARIA and the SSRG. This survey will also inform a proposed merger between the two organisations.

Please follow this link to take part.

No individuals will be identified as part of this study, but if enough people reply we will provide information by organisation type and location. Please share your personal views as an individual. We are not asking for a collective view from a named organisation and, therefore, more than one person from an organisation can take part.

This survey should take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete. It will close at noon on Friday 2nd December 2016.

If you would like more information about this survey, please contact the survey team at

Thank you in advance for your participation,
