GRASP survey, January 2020
Thank you for taking this Survey.
The purpose of it is to help F/friends to explore how much enthusiasm they have for change in our meetings. It is an opportunity to engage with possibilities and issues. This is not for direct outcomes, such as numbers of most popular ideas etc., but as part of preparing for discerning our way forward together.
To answer the questions you will need to look at the "GRASP Interim report and Consultation", which is available here:
Basic information about why this is important - in Yorkshire and in Britain Yearly Meeting generally - can be found on the same page, in the Working Papers listed at the bottom.
