Hackney Young People’s Survey: Have your say to help improve services

Members of the Hackney Youth Parliament are seeking young people’s views on activities and support available to 8 -19 year olds in the borough.

For the second time in their term, members of the Hackney Youth Parliament elected in October 2010 will be undertaking the annual Young People’s Survey in partnership with Hackney Council’s Young Hackney service.

The responses will give a picture of the issues that most concern young people, and the information gathered will help to improve services and shape future provision for young people in the borough.

Last year, young people said they would like better IT facilities in youth clubs. There s already been a big improvement on this front in Stoke Newington, with the opening of Young Hackney Stoke Newington s IT suite. In 2012, there will be four more new Young Hackney centres, each of which will be fitted out with a state-of-the-art media suite.

Councillor Rita Krishna, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “The annual survey shapes the services that are provided for young people in the Borough. Services for young people have continued to improve over the years, thanks to their active participation and input. I urge all young people to have their say.”
