Living in Lancashire Panel

Listening to what people say helps us to improve the services we provide to you. That's why we run the Living in Lancashire (LiL) panel.

About the panel

The Living in Lancashire panel brings local views and opinions to the centre of the decisions we make. The panel consists of over 2,000 Lancashire residents from all walks of life right across the county. They tell us about what is needed in their area, what is going well and where we can improve.

Eligibility

Anyone who is aged 16 years or over and lives in the areas that Lancashire County Council covers is welcome to join.

Leaving the panel

You can leave the panel at any time. All you need to do is contact us by post, telephone or e-mail, telling us your membership number and name. We will remove you from the panel straight away.

Every so often we will randomly remove members from the LiL panel so that the panel remains fresh and represents the general views of people in Lancashire. We will write or e-mail to let you know about any changes to your membership.

Once you leave the panel all of your personal details will be removed from our database.

What it involves

Living in Lancashire members receive four questionnaires a year which should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Each questionnaire focuses on a couple of important issues. The topics covered reflect all aspects of life in Lancashire. To find out what topics we have covered in the past, search the consultations database and select "Life in Lancashire Panel" in the "Consultation with" field.

You will be able to choose whether to complete questionnaires online or receive a copy through the post

You may also be invited to take part in interviews or local discussion groups. These activities are optional.

You don't get paid to be a member but if you attend some of the optional research activities, for example local discussion groups, payments may be made to cover your out-of-pocket expenses.
