How to start your Cinnamon Faith Action Audit Survey
The audit can only be completed on-line and only with the link that was sent to you in your email from Watermelon (the name of the on-line audit company who are practically managing the research on our behalf). If you ‘lose’ that email – your local audit Champion has a copy of your link if you need to find it again.
WHEN YOU ARE ANSWERING THE ON-LINE QUESTIONS, PLEASE THINK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED DURING Jan – Dec 2015
(NB: For this to work well with the questions involving numbers, all we need to have is a GOOD ESTIMATE).
Questions 1 – 7 Are simple short questions about your organisation or place of worship
Question 8 Asks if you have significant involvement with a number of widely used community projects
Question 9 Asks if you have any or your own community engagement activities e.g. Parent & Toddlers etc
Question 10 Asks you to list all of your own community engagement activities
Questions 11 – 12 Asks you to categorise your community engagement activities e.g. how do they help and who do they help
Questions 13 – 14 Are related to the organisations listed in Q8, and won’t appear if you’re not already involved with them
Question 15 Asks the broad age ranges of people helped by each of the activities
Question 16 Asks the average attendance on a typical week for each of your activities
Question 17 Asks the total number of people who have been along at least once in the year for each of your activities.
Question 18 Asks how often each group meets
Question 19 Asks if any employed staff help with any of the activities
Question 20 Asks how many paid staff help with each activity
Question 21 Asks how many hours the paid staff give to each activity
Question 22 Asks how many volunteers help with each activity
Question 23 Asks how many hours is typical for volunteers to give to each activity
Question 24 – 26 Asks some simple questions about working in partnership with other organisations
You might think that is a whole bunch of questions, asking about a lot of things no one is likely to remember. However, if we keep to a good estimate, and do this a step at a time it’s amazing how much people do remember.
The Cinnamon Faith Action Audit typically takes 20-40 minutes to complete and if you are struggling with it, just ask your local Champion for some help.
The on-line questionnaire saves each complete page of progress. So, if you close it down, all you need to do is to use your LINK to open it up again each time.
Please contact your local Champion if you have any other questions.
