It is one of the key methods used by the Council and its Partners to find out what people think about local services. This type of consultation is something called a 'Citizens' Panel'. A Citizens' Panel and the City Voice is the same thing.
If you decided to join the Panel, you will have the opportunity to fill in three questionnaires per year. Questions will be asked by Aberdeen's Community Planning Partners, including:
At the moment around 1,000 people are part of the City Voice and they make up a representative sample of Aberdeen's population. This is important, as we want to hear the views of all sectors of our community. But to make it even more effective, we are looking for another 1,000 people to join.

We currently have 1000 panellists on the City Voice, but we are always looking for more to help boost our sample and ensure that the panel is representative of our City. After the success of the last postal recruitment drive 2 years ago, we are running another one this summer. We will be writing out to over 2000 randomly selected households in an attempt to gain a few more panellists. If you know of anyone interested joining the City Voice, please contact Philippa Mason.

I want to take this opportunity to welcome our new panellists to the City Voice. Following the recruitment drive, we have managed to increase the number of panellists to 900! We had a fantastic response, but still need more residents to get involved. If you, or someone you know is interested in joining the panel, please feel free to contact me for further information.
Regular panellists may have noticed that the City Voice has undergone a makeover! We thought the original graphics were looking a bit outdated, so we have modernised our logo and style. You may also have noticed that we have gone to full colour for our newsletter. This has been possible due to receiving some very competitive quotes which means that overall, production of the new look newsletter and questionnaire costs no more than it did before!
