Nationwide survey of children and young people: one for children aged 7-11; one for young people aged 12-18

We’re letting you know you about a really important survey to help children and young people to tell Welsh Government how they’ve felt about lockdown: how it’s impacted on their health; any worries they’ve had; how they think it might affect their education; and also any positives they’ve had from it. It’s a joint survey from the Welsh Government, the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Youth Parliament for Wales / Senedd Ieuenctid Cymru and Children in Wales.

The survey has been developed and tested with children and young people.

It will help Government to respond in the best way to the situation as it develops, and to inform how they work with and talk to children and young people during this crisis and beyond. We need your help to ensure that as many children as possible have a chance to have their say.

Please note that the survey makes clear where children can seek help if they are affected by any of the topics in the survey.

The survey is here. We’d expect it to take children 15 minutes to complete and they can do it on any device by following the link. It closes on 27th May 

·         The web survey has three options: one for children aged 7-11; one for young people aged 12-18; and one accessible survey that uses widget symbols to support the text.  Children can choose the right one for them. All three surveys have the same link.
