Want to know what MLAs really think of your organisation or campaign?

26 September 2016 - by Tristen Kelso

Entries for our Autumn MLA Research Panel are now closed but we are accepting bookings for the Spring 2017 intake.

This Panel offers an excellent opportunity for organisations to gauge the views of the new personnel at Stormont at the beginning of a new mandate following the recent Assembly election.

The MLA Research Panel enables you to anonymously survey at least 40 MLAs on questions of your choice. Since 2009, many of the key campaigning organisations have benefitted from the insights they have gained by participating in the Panel. It has helped organisations evidence the effectiveness of past engagement efforts, and to inform future strategy and campaigns.

Results of the survey are broken down into a number of useful categories, including: party; political designation; geographical area; sex; new/returning MLAs.   

Use the MLA Research Panel to:

  • Measure the effectiveness of your organisation's engagement with MLAs - are your messages understood? Are they making an impact?
  • Benchmark your organisation's political engagement - how do you compare with your competitors?
  • Test support for specific policy priorities among politicians - where is your organisation really contributing to change? What makes you stand out from the rest?
  • Inform MLAs about your issues

We provide analysis of the response to your questions in a report format. This can be used as a solid evidence base to measure and inform your campaigns or manifesto engagement work, and quantitatively display the impact of political engagement and lobbying. 

Entries are now CLOSED for our Autumn panel, however we are now accepting bookings for our Spring 2017 intake.
