Citizens Panels fact sheet – Central Southern

Citizens’ Panel | Southampton

Talk to us how the economy is working for you

The Bank of England wants to hear from you.

As the UK’s central bank, it’s our job to set policies that work for people all over the United Kingdom.

To help us do that, it’s important that we know what’s going on.

Our Citizens’ Panels are a new initiative to help us listen to people’s views.

And we’ll be holding our first panel for Central Southern England in Southampton in July when we will be joined by a senior Bank official.

What do we want to hear about?

We want to hear your experiences of every aspect of the economy.  That includes things such as jobs, pay, the cost of living and housing.

We’d also like to hear your views on banks and building societies.  For example, what are your experiences of borrowing and saving money?

And we’ll try to answer any questions you’ve got about the Bank of England.

Who can take part?

We’re looking for people from all sorts of backgrounds to join the conversation. You certainly don’t need to be an expert on the economy!

When and where is it?

Our Citizens’ Panel will meet in Southampton on the evening of Tuesday 2 July.  We’ll provide food and drink and will cover reasonable expenses. Venue details will be confirmed on registration.
