Viewpoint - residents' panel

We believe that consultation is crucial in helping us make decisions which will affect the Borough and that consultation has a key role in informing and influencing our decision making and activities. 

Viewpoint is the Council’s voluntary residents’ consultation panel which seeks the views of residents using monthly surveys that cover a range of council services. The Viewpoint panel plays an important role in informing and influencing our decision making and activities. 

We are looking for new members to join the Viewpoint panel and help us make decisions on a number of different topics.


To take part, you need to:

  • Live in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees.

What’s involved?

  • Viewpoint members will be sent 10 short surveys and 2 standard surveys per year.
  • Previous surveys have included topics such as:

- Events, Festivals and Specialist Markets

- Fostering and Adoption Marketing Strategy

- Family Hubs

  • Short surveys are online and take 5 minutes to complete.

  • On occasion Viewpoint members may, purely on a voluntary basis, be invited to take part in focus groups or workshops.
