Worcestershire County Council's Act local Website

Through use of social media e.g. Facebook and Twitter, Worcestershire County Council (WCC) is looking to present decision-making differently and through additional channels. Social Media is a tool that would enable WCC to engage with a much wider audience - including young people that might not necessarily be enthused by a cabinet / council meeting but would want to have their say and would now find this easily accessible. Reaching a wider audience will also improve the dynamics in response and help to generate different outcomes.

1. How many use social media individually / as an organisation to find out about Council activity and decisions being taken or made?

2. Are any WCC services good / not so good about promoting their activity through social media?

3. Social media could help WCC to highlight and improve its communications around democracy and decision making e.g. cabinet / council meetings

a. As an example if we were to have live tweeting (Q&A) through cabinet / council meeting (like BBC question time) is this something you would engage with?

b. Would you feel you were able to influence decision making?

c. Do you currently feel as individuals / orgs you are able to input into the decision making process?

4. Do you feel WCC communicates decisions well?

a. Would the use of social media help improve this?

5. Are you aware of your local Councillor / Council (Parish or Town council) having an online presence ? e.g. Facebook / Twitter

6. Do you know how to contact your local councillor?

Please submit all responses to Rob Elmes, Project Manager, on  01905 766605 ext 6605 or send him an email.
