Youth Service Survey

Essex County Council Youth Service are currently reviewing our core age range and are undertaking a research project to capture the views of the wider community as we seek to understand the services and provisions available to help children make the transition into their teen age years.

The Youth Service currently work with a core age of 13-19 and up to 25 for young people with SEND.

We are exploring the option of increasing our reach to provide earlier help and lower our entry age into the service to 10 years. To aid our research we have created 4 short surveys to capture the views of professionals working with children and young people, parents, young people aged 10-11 and young people aged 12-19.

These surveys have been designed to capture your thoughts on earlier help, establish what services already exist and what could be improved. The information gained from the surveys will help build an understanding of current needs and inform any proposed changes to how the youth service operate in the future. The links for the surveys are below:
