It should take between 5 - 10 minutes to fill in. For your efforts you will be entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to win £40 of Amazon vouchers.

It's vitally important that we get feedback from you, including both positive comments and constructive criticism so that we can plan DAO's future and prove to our funders the need for our work.
