In addition to this the Office of Ethnic Communities would like to hear your views on ethnic community participation in civic processes by conducting a short survey:
• Democratic and political processes (e.g.) enrolling to vote, voting and completing the Census
• Local government and council (e.g. involvement in council decision making processes and attending council meetings)
• Community engagement and Voluntary work within the community (e.g. involvement in community and school boards)
