Choose the Right Survey

Local mental health services can choose one or more surveys from the range offered here or you may prefer to develop your own. Notice that the Green Light Toolkit offers online aggregation and analysis of the findings from just one of these survey tools - the Online Survey 2022. If you choose to use one of the other survey tools, you will have to work out how to aggregate and analyse the results yourself.

Easy Read Survey 2022

This is the survey to use if you are intending to support people with learning disabilities to give their views. The Easy Read Survey 2022 will help people who need support to present their views, perhaps from an independent advocate. As the answers may be given in a variety of ways, care and skill will be needed to combine the findings from different people. For other Easy Read options, see below for Norfolk & Suffolk 2021 and Dialog.

Online Survey 2022

If you want to collect individual views from at least six people in each mental health team you include, this is the one to use. Each person can complete the questionnaire online, and software will then provide you with a chart analysing the results. You can also see or download the questions as an Online Survey 2022 pdf file. This survey questionnaire is not available as Easy Read. The questions have been carefully revised and updated from the 2013 surveys, More information is available at How to use the online survey.

As the questions have been amended, they are no longer directly comparable to the Basic, Better and Best survey questions (see below). The order has been changed to improve the flow between topics, informed by the findings of an exploratory factor analysis of 376 full returns of the 2013 surveys.

Autism Only 2022

We heard from some autistic people that they wanted a revised version of the Online Survey 2022 which just asked about the experience of autistic people – so here are the Autism Only 2022 survey questions. Separate arrangements should be made to listen to the views of autistic people with learning disabilities and to people with learning disabilities.
