Young People's Survey 2021

26 October 2021

A survey to share thoughts and ideas about activities and support for young people in Hertfordshire is taking place in November and December.

Hertfordshire County Council’s Services for Young People (SfYP) has developed a survey for young people aged 11-17, and up to the age of 25 for those with special educational needs. This follows on from our previous countywide survey conducted in 2019, which resulted in actions being developed through district and borough Youth Strategy Partnership Groups (YSPGs).

Young people have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic; therefore, we have developed this survey to help determine if concerns and priorities have changed since the start of 2019; and to further develop YSPG actions in response.

Young people discussion

The aim of the survey is to capture the voices of young people across Hertfordshire to help ensure that we continue to deliver valuable, inclusive and relevant services and activities for young people.

The survey is being sent to secondary and middle schools and colleges across the county and can also be accessed via the links below.

Executive Member for Children, Young People and Families County Councillor Teresa Heritage said:

“We know that young people have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. We want to hear from young people themselves about their concerns so that we are able to support them in future. Hearing young people’s views will help us to plan for the year ahead.”

Completing the survey

If you know a young person aged 11-17, or up to 25 if they have special education needs (SEN), please encourage them to complete the survey through their school, local youth project/group or by using the relevant link below.

Both surveys open on 1st November and close on 31st December 2021.
