We are interested in speaking with as many businesses as possible, whether or not your business has been a victim of crime. Only then can we be sure that the results represent the experiences of all businesses.

An Ipsos interviewer may call you

Ipsos, an independent social research organisation, is carrying out the survey on behalf of the Home Office. The survey will take place in summer and autumn 2023. During this time, an Ipsos interviewer may call you to conduct an interview over the telephone, or to arrange a convenient time to call back. The interview should take about 20 minutes. All responses will remain totally confidential and anonymous for all individuals and organisations.

If your business is selected at random to participate in this survey, we would be very grateful for your time and would very much appreciate your input into this important survey.
