Launch of review to understand the impact of policy development on children and young people

News - 28 May 2019

NCB (National Children's Bureau) are delighted to be working in partnership with the British Academy to gather the views and experiences of children and young people on childhood.

The British Academy are conducting a wide ranging review of policy and research across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, to understand the impact of policy development of children and young people’s experiences of growing up in the UK.

NCB want to make sure this important review includes the voices and experiences of children and young people. They will gather views through a survey and focus groups to understand what is important to children and young people in the UK today.

They need your help to reach as many children and young people as possible by distributing the survey to schools, youth groups and other services providers.

There is an Easy Read information sheet for young people, which you are encouraged to share alongside the survey. This sheet can be downloaded online.
