The Influence Panel is an online community of Action for Children supporters sharing ideas, shaping our work and helping us make the big decisions. If you give your time, donate or support our campaigns, we’d love you to join!
As a member of The Influence Panel you’ll take part in surveys, discussions and much more. You’ll have your say on lots of important issues – be it new product ideas, fundraising events, or how we interact with you.
Visit the 'Sign up' page on this website. You’ll be asked a few questions, and be directed to a short registration form. Once registered, you’ll have access to The Influence Panel and all of the activities
No. Membership of The Influence Panel is free.
You’ll receive an email every time a new survey is added. Everything takes place online. All you need to do is click on the link in your email, or copy and paste the web address into your internet browser. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to complete the survey. The survey link will also appear in the 'My surveys' area.
Typically, you’ll be sent a survey invitation once a month. New ‘QuickPolls’ will be posted on-site once or twice a month, as well as new discussions on the ‘Forums’ page.
Feel free to take part in as many surveys and discussions as you like.
You’ll also receive monthly updates on the results of previous surveys, along with how the findings are being used.
Surveys will usually take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Some, however, will take less than 5 minutes, while others may take longer than 15 minutes. You can choose which and how many surveys you complete. We’ll always let you know how long a survey will take so that you can plan accordingly. Surveys can be paused and restarted from where you left off.
As a Panel member, you’ll shape the way Action for Children works. To say thanks, we’ll keep you updated about the difference you’re making. You’ll get monthly updates, including survey results, which show how your feedback is influencing what we do.
What’s more, you’ll be entered into special prize draws to thank you for getting involved.
