Children and Young People's Quality of Life Survey 2021
A key recommendation of the 2018 Children's Integrated Needs Assessment was to better understand the experiences of children and young people growing up in Herefordshire. Accordingly, a Children and Young People’s Quality of Life Survey was carried out across primary, secondary, sixth form and special schools across the county.
The work was commissioned by Herefordshire Council on behalf of the Children and Young People's Partnership, and was carried out by School Health Education Unit (SHEU). It was designed to provide robust information to inform plans and strategies and forms part of the evidence base for the council and clinical commissioning group’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). The survey was originally planned for spring 2020 but delays due to the coronavirus pandemic mean that it now provides a post-covid baseline.
The survey covers the following topics:
- Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco
- Emotional Health and Wellbeing
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity
- Puberty and Growing Up
- Relationships and sexual health
Important Note: We are aware that the survey report is not at present fully accessible to users of assistive technology. We are working to remedy this as soon as possible, however if, in the meantime you experience any problems, or require the report in a different format, please contact us
