Residents are being asked to volunteer for Exeter City Council’s Wavelength panel. Letters and recruitment forms have been sent to 10,000 homes across Exeter but anyone over 18 can volunteer to join the panel by going to the Wavelength page on city council’s website at and completing the form online.
From those who volunteer, 1,000 panellists will be chosen to reflect the makeup of the city. This ensures there are enough people in all age groups and parts of the city for the panel to be statistically representative.
Wavelength is one of the main ways for Exeter City Council to consult residents on the services it provides. Panel members will be sent up to three short questionnaires a year. These should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can also be completed online. Panel members may also be invited to take part in other consultation activities, such as focus groups, public meetings and other events.
