How long is the consultation open for?

The consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has taken part.

I have questions about the survey or the consultation – who should I contact?

Please email the research team at

How will taking part in the consultation make a difference?

This is your chance to shape the questions asked in the next Natsal. Your answers will help the research team make decisions about which questions should be included and excluded, and which need to be changed.

Will I be able to see the results of the consultation?

We will produce a report summarising the findings of the consultation which will be available later in the year – you can leave your contact details in the consultation and indicate that you would like to be emailed about it. It will also be available on our website.

Are responses confidential?

We will not publish your name, or any information which can identify you, but if you agree we may use your anonymised comments when reporting the results of the consultation. If you are responding on behalf of an organisation we will report a list of the organisations contributing to the consultation (you can opt-out of this in the final section of the consultation questionnaire).

Do I have to leave my name and contact details?

No, you don’t have to. However, if you would like to be kept up-to-date about the results of the consultation, invited to take part in further consultations or events relating to Natsal, or be sent more information about Natsal, please leave your contact details in the consultation questionnaire. If you would rather not leave your details here, you can still get updates about the survey – please email and ask to be added to the mailing list.

Can I withdraw or change my consultation responses once I’ve taken part?

You will not be able to go back and edit your consultation responses once you have submitted them. However if there’s anything you’d like to add or change, or if you would like to withdraw your responses, you can email us at Please note we can only change or withdraw responses if you have given your name/email address.
