Do you ever wonder if the council and other public organisations use what local people think to design services and set local priorities?

Well the modernised Birmingham Be Heard Consultation Database lets you track what people have been asked, what they have said and what the Council or other public sector organisations, like the NHS, have done as a result. Be Heard is an online consultation portal that allows residents of Birmingham to give feedback on the issues that are important to them.

It is the citizen space for delivery of views on anything from the budget to recycling, new homes to adult social care.

The pioneering database which publicises consultations has just celebrated its first birthday, and regularly sees thousands of responses to surveys.

It is easy to provide your views in the easy to answer surveys which include a built-in equalities analysis tool for questionnaires.
