Membership Engagement Services is an independent research, engagement and communications company.

It is contracted by Cuadrilla Resources to conduct surveys and consult with locals in Lancashire in the vicinity of the fracking firm's operations. Residents will be asked their views on which types of local community issues or projects the Community Benefit Fund for the first exploration well should be spent.

At the same time, local residents will also be consulted on whether they wish the funds for the other three wells Cuadrilla has planning consent to drill and hydraulically fracture to be paid into the independent Community Benefit Fund, managed by the Community Foundation for Lancashire, or proportionately directly to individual local households via a separate scheme. If all three wells are drilled, this would total another £300,000.
