 How’s life for you? What’s good and bad in Bristol and how does living here make you feel? Could things be done differently in your area? In September the ‘Quality of Life’ survey was sent to a random sample of Bristol homes. All sorts of people take part but people from ethnic minorities and young people aged 16-25 are under-represented, so it’s important your voice is heard.
