Named Coronavirus and Me, the survey is open to those aged 7 to 18 and covers key themes and issues including about their health, education, the impact on social aspects of their lives and the needs of specific groups.
Welsh Government has teamed up with the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Children in Wales and Welsh Youth Parliament / Senedd Ieuenctid Cymru to design the nation-wide survey. They are the first government in the UK to formally seek the views of its country’s children and young people.
The results will help to inform the Welsh Government’s approach to working with and communicating to Wales’ younger generation during and beyond the pandemic.
To enable a diverse range of children and young people to take part - including children under 7 and those with additional support needs - a symbols version of the survey is available as well as picture activity task as an alternative of filling out the text version of the survey.
The survey is accessible here: www.childcomwales.org.uk/coronavirusandme
