Young people in Richmond are being asked to take part in an online survey to help identify the gaps in support for the borough's health and wellbeing services.

The survey has been designed by the borough’s Youth Council in partnership with the Council’s Public Health Team.

The Youth Council is made up of young people from schools across the borough. It is targeted at 11-17 year olds who live or go to school in Richmond and looks at areas such as youth services, wellbeing support at school and healthy lifestyles.

Cllr Penny Frost, Chair of the Education and Children’s Services Committee, said: “We put children and young people at the heart of all we do, and ensuring we effectively support the health and wellbeing of our young people is vitally important.

“We have been using a collaborative approach with children, young people, schools and other partners to truly work together to develop and deliver services to improve the health and wellbeing of Richmond families.

"To continue to do this, we need to hear from those impacted by our services as these views must be central to the future of service delivery.

“I look forward to hearing the views from the young people across the borough.”

The results of the survey will be used to help shape services in the future.

Feedback will be anonymous.

However, as an incentive, participants will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 voucher.

In addition, the school who submits the greatest number of entries will win £500 towards student wellbeing related activities.
