Rother Citizens Panel

Join Rother Citizens Panel if you like to have your say about local issues and Council services.

What is Rother Citizens Panel?

The Panel are hundreds of local residents who volunteer to take part in consultations and customer research from Rother District Council and its partners.  

The Panel members tell the Council a bit about themselves and give permission to the Council to contact them.  We try to match the demographic characteristics of Rother in the Citizens Panel so that the Panel can represent the whole population.

The Council sends the Panel members questionnaires and consultation documents, or could call and ask questions on the telephone or ask them to come to discussion groups or workshops.  The Council gives feedback to the Panel members on what they and other people have said in consultations and customer research.   Main contact is through email and our Facebook group.

You do not have to take part in every activity or opportunity.  We do consultations four to six times a year, on average.

You can join the conversation on Twitter @rdcconsult
