Services for Young People (SfYP) is working in partnership with Public Health Hertfordshire and the HCT Public Health Nursing Service to deliver a single survey to capture the health and wellbeing needs of young people in the county and help us plan services and support for young people.
Following the success of last year’s survey, with just under 12,000 responses, the 2022 Hertfordshire Young People’s Health and Wellbeing Survey aims to gather useful data on issues that are affecting young people and their priorities. Co-produced with young people, the question topics include mental health and wellbeing, bullying, personal safety, relationships, drug and alcohol use, education, employment and more.
The anonymous and confidential survey for secondary school-aged young people is open from Monday 21 November until Friday 16 December 2022. Please encourage any young people you know or work with to complete the survey to ensure their views and opinions are included:
The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and, as in previous years, SfYP will be offering Hertfordshire schools a session facilitated by SfYP staff to help complete the survey. Please email SfYP@hertfordshire.gov.uk to set this up.
The Health Intelligence Team will analyse the survey results and, at the beginning of next year, will provide information about young people’s health behaviours to anyone who works with or for young people. Analysis of specific data will be available on request and schools can also request a meeting with SfYP, Public Health Hertfordshire or the Public Health Nursing Service to discuss the data and to look at any action required to address any issues raised.
For any questions about the survey, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
