Two surveys have been created asking children and young people to voice how they are feeling about the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. The surveys are key to finding out what children and young people need so that they can be supported effectively.

Young ScotYouthLink Scotland and the Scottish Youth Parliament are working together to find out more about how children and young people feel about Coronavirus. The ‘Lockdown Lowdown’ survey is open to school, college and university- aged participants. It intends to inform and support youth work organisations and practitioners. In addition, the Scottish Youth Parliament may use the results to inform its policy work and Young Scot may use results to help them develop their services and digital information for young people.

The Children’s Parliament hopes to gather the views of 8 to 14-year-olds living in Scotland and share them with adults who make decisions which can affect these children’s lives. This survey will take place every month so the Children’s Parliament can discover if and how things are changing for the lives of children in Scotland.

  • The survey will be open until April 26th 2020 and you can get involved here
