Our survey says

Survey results comparing New Deal areas against the national average have shown New Deal seems to be having a positive effect. More people in New Deal areas think their area is improving than people in the UK as a whole. Most people have heard of New Deal and think it’s helping.

In 2002 people in New Deal areas were much more worried about personal safety and being robbed than in the UK as a whole. By 2004 this was one of the biggest improvements, especially in Burngreave. Trust in services is improving in Burngreave and most New Deal areas, but it’s falling in the UK generally.

The Household Survey, carried out by MORI in 2004, was based on 503 face-to-face interviews in Burngreave and nearly 20,000 interviews nationally. By comparing results from Burngreave, other New Deal areas and the national average we can see where we fit the national pattern, but also where Burngreave seems different from other deprived areas.

When asked what most needed to change in Burngreave, drug dealing, local shops and supermarkets were top answers. Along with parks and open spaces these issues seemed much more important here than in other New Deal areas.

Another result where Burngreave seemed significantly different in 2004 was 33% of us said we felt we could influence decisions compared with only about 25% in 2002 and across New Deals and the country generally. We are as satisfied with our GPs as the national average, and more than average are happy about hospital services, but unusually for New Deal areas, people in Burngreave seem to be finding it harder to see their GP than they were in 2002.
