Have your say

Listening to everyone is at the heart of everything we do.    

We will list all current consultation information, surveys and events here when they are available.

There are currently no live consultations.

Join our new Business Panel

We have asked Ipsos MORI to develop a new business panel for us in order to gain vital information about business needs across the South of Scotland region.

Being on the SOSE business panel provides a voice for your business, your local area and your sector, giving you the opportunity to directly influence our work.  We will send you an overview of survey findings so you can compare your business with others across the region.

Being part of the panel is easy and you can opt out at any time. You will be invited to take part in around three telephone surveys each year, and possibly some other research projects for us.  

The surveys are confidential. No individual organisations which take part will be identifiable from the published results. The survey typically takes 20 minutes to complete.

If you are a Business/Social Enterprise and want to be a member of the Business Panel email hie-sose-survey@ipsos-mori.com to arrange a call back.

How will we engage with you?

Our Engagement Framework takes into account all of the learning we have gained so far both from the two initial rounds of meetings we did as South of Scotland Economic Partnership (SOSEP) and from what we have learned so far as SOSE.

This Framework, alongside our Operating Plan, will be crucial to that as we ensure we make it possible for everyone to engage with us who wants to.

Keeping the positive dialogue going with our key stakeholders is as critical now and going forward as it was over the last two years – so we will continue to make sure that everyone can play their part in helping our region to flourish.   

We are still building our stakeholder lists - so please contact us to let us know if you want to be added to our network.
