Youth Survey

Youth survey

Youth survey will help agencies target services

A survey of young people will help the Isle of Man Government and partner agencies to better plan and target services.

The biennial survey of 11 to 18-year-olds begins on Friday (6th November) and runs until the end of the year.

The survey is being conducted by the Department of Education Youth Service which will report the findings to the Children’s Services Partnership. Young people are being sent postcards inviting them to go online to complete the survey. This personal invitation has proved to be very successful in getting young people to engage and to emphasise how important their views are. All the answers remain entirely confidential.

The Partnership – which is made up of Government Departments that work most closely with young people is responsible for the Children and Youth People’s Strategy.

A new charity The Youth Trust will analyse the data and will encourage young people to have their voices heard and contribute to the community.

Ken Callister, Principal Youth Officer with the DEC, said: ‘Government’s priorities include improving the quality of life of young people, giving them access to appropriate support and anticipating their needs when planning services.

‘The Youth Trust has been established to be voice of young people and pull together the many services and opportunities that are available under the Youth Service’s banner “things to do, places to go and people to talk to”.

The survey comprises about 50 questions relating to education, leisure, health, social attitudes, lifestyle choices and well-being and will take around 20 minutes. It is hoped that young people will be able to complete the survey independently however, in previous surveys some young people had help from parents where they didn’t fully grasp the questions, it also helped them understand the importance of getting their views taken seriously. Those participating can choose to enter into a free prize draw which is separate to the survey.

Ken said: ‘The 2013 survey elicited 1,477 responses and we are looking for a similar response rate so we can be sure it represents the views of 11-18-year-olds.”
