Croydon’s Residents’ Survey

We are working with DJS Research, an independent research agency, to carry out face to face surveys with a representative selection of residents in the borough.

The surveys help us understand what Croydon is like as a place to live, what residents think about the services we provide and how we can improve.

All views of participating residents remain strictly confidential, and no names or other identifying details will be passed to us, or any other organisation, unless the respondent explicitly consents to being contacted in future.

Find out more information about DJS Research.

Alternatively, please contact the communications and engagement team:

Town centre survey

All views of participating residents remain strictly confidential, and no names or other identifying details will be passed to us, or any other organisation.
