About the People’s Panel

About the People’s Panel

The People’s Panel consists of over 3000 local people from Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire who regularly tell us what they think and who influence local decisions that affect them and their families.

There are no meetings to attend. We can even arrange to send you surveys straight to your inbox when they open.

All you have to do is click the link, tell us what you think and you’re done.

Getting involved couldn’t be easier.

And remember, each time you complete a survey you will immediately be entered into a prize draw where you have the opportunity to win great prizes such as high street shopping vouchers, TV’s, tablet computers or tickets to shows and events

There are two types of surveys that we run:

People’s Panel surveys cover a whole range of topics that help us to understand how we make Hull a great place to live, work and visit.

We ask about:

    • What should the council spend money on?
    • Is your neighbourhood a nice place to live?
    • How should we deliver social care?
    • How do we get more visitors to the city?
    • What should the council do about the city centre and the high street?

and lots more!

And we listen too – the results of People’s Panel surveys are regularly used to plan and shape services, create policy, apply for external funding, monitor satisfaction and influence local decision making.

Vox Pop surveys are a sister series of the People’s Panel.

These surveys help us to explore the social attitudes of local people, and to explore our People’s Panel findings in more depth.

The People’s Panel Vox Pop Series enables us to understand, in detail, what local people feel about things that are important to them, their attitudes and motivations, and why they do what they do and think the way that they do.

Through the Vox Pop, local people have told us about:

    • Beliefs and religion
    • Life and life after death
    • Sex and lies
    • Political correctness
    • Sleep and dreams
    • Family and relationships
    • The meaning of life


We also run special events for People’s Panel members and offer special prizes.

Previously these have included:

  • tea in the Lord Mayor’s parlour with the Lord Mayor
  • an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Guildhall; including the old courts and cells
  • a guided tour of the KC Stadium and tickets to a sports match
  • tickets to shows and concerts at our theatres, halls and the Bonus Arena
  • a behind the scenes visit to your local fire station

Everything you tell us is kept anonymous and confidential, and we never share your details with anyone else.

So what are you waiting for?
