How do I join?
Once we invite you to join Sgwrs, you’ll need to tell us about you and your household. Once you've done this, we’ll send you a confirmation email and you’ll need to click on the link in the email to complete your registration and join Sgwrs. We’ll then send you surveys and other activities and you can start earning great rewards.
What's in it for me?
With your help, we’ll be able to make better decisions about transport in Wales and you'll also have the opportunity to earn great rewards.
How often will I be invited to take part in a survey?
Once you’ve become a member of Sgwrs, we’ll invite you to take part in regular surveys and research projects. We know your time is valuable, so we’ll keep our surveys as short as possible.
How long will I be a member?
You can be a member for as long as you like, and you don’t have to join in if you don’t want to. If you don’t take part in any activities for a long time, we’ll email you to check you still want to be a member. If you don’t reply, we’ll assume you’ve decided to leave Sgwrs.
How often may I participate in any one survey?
You can only complete a particular survey once. Through Sgwrs we’re conducting professional market research and our surveys are by invitation only to ensure high standards.
How will I know if there is a survey for me to complete?
We’ll email you an invitation with a link to a survey. All the surveys you can take part in will be available when you log into the Sgwrs website. Please try to log in regularly as we’re keen to hear your thoughts, feedback and opinions.
How are the results of the research used?
The results of the research will be anonymous and used to help make decisions about transport in Wales. They may also be used in TfW’s communications.
