Programme Audit & Research

To support this action research programme and help strengthen everyone’s activities across Swale and Medway, a two-phase Audit has been carried out and a Research Strategy drafted.

Between 1st August 2012 and 1st September 2013 this website received 3,073 unique website visitors and captured a total ‘Sign Up’ reach of 369, with a local reach of 228 (93 in Swale, 135 in Medway): 61.7% (228) of all signups come from within Swale and Medway. 10.5% (39) of all signups don’t wish to be contacted by Arts Council for research purposes. A total of 109 Community Catalyst nominations were received. Our research and data gathering continues and will help us (and you) shape a more informed programme with demographic data, national statistics and public asset and cultural information mapping. Please do explore the links above and map below:

In short, The Audit confirms that Community Catalysts do exist to help shape and drive the programme forward. Local residents have displayed a great willingness to get involved in conversations, and this has provided a solid list of local people to call upon as future advisors and engage in the programmes decision-making processes.

    The map key doesn’t seem to match the colours on the map – for example large areas on the map (eg South of the M2 as it crosses the river) but there’s no green in the key?

      Hello Steve.

      The colour panels are slighly opaque so the google map green is coming through a little. If you click on the area you’re talking about it’ll give you the exact numerical breakdowns. If you need more detail it’s certainly worth exploring the Audit document.
