Complete the Government Serious Crime Research Survey

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Survey iconDespite the understandable recent focus on Covid-19 and recovery, the threat from terrorism, which is not just constrained to the UK's largest cities, sadly remains.

This has been tragically and repeatedly demonstrated by recent attacks in Streatham and Reading, as well as the disruption of several high-profile plots by individuals living in towns and smaller communities.

The UK Government aims to reduce the risk to the UK and its citizens from all forms of terrorism, so that people can go about their daily lives freely and with confidence. As part of this approach, members of the public, business owners/managers and local communities play a critical role in helping ensure the safety of the public.

As part of Government's efforts to routinely review and seek to improve their approach, they are conducting a high priority research project to speak to organisations in your industry (and other industries).

The Government need to speak to business owners/managers of Micro/Small businesses (up to 250 employees, not sole traders) with premises that are publicly accessible (in normal times!), from across Great Britain. Even if they have not been directly affected by these types of incidents before, or have no prior knowledge of security issues, it is important to have their voice included in this research.

The Government has asked if the ACT can distribute the following survey to our members. Any time take to complete the survey is much appreciated.
