Help council to support young people – and win £50

Young people in Hull are being asked to help tailor support and activities available to them – and could win £50 in vouchers for their trouble.

Hull City Council has designed a survey to better understand the city’s young people, with the results used to improve services for those aged 10 to 24 who may need extra help.

The local authority’s youth services include workshops on drug and alcohol awareness, family days and counselling plus activities at youth clubs during weekends and school holidays.

The survey asks what young people would choose to do with their spare time and how they want to get help if they have a problem or if something is worrying them.

All completed surveys that include contact information will be entered into a prize draw to win up to £50 in shopping vouchers.

Hull residents aged 10 to 24 are being asked to complete a survey into types of support and activities available to them.

Rachel Roberts, Hull City Council’s head of early help and commissioning, said: ‘We want to hear from young people about how they spend their free time so we can shape services and support which makes sense to young people.

“Society is changing at a fast pace and your services need to keep up with this and flex and adapt.

“It is hugely important that we listen to the voice of young people and the council work hard to ensure this happens. We want to ensure we invest in high quality provision for young people which matches what they need and want and supports them achieve their full potential.”

The survey will be closed on Friday 14 June at 5pm.
