Cumbria Young People Survey

We would like to hear from you….
Cumbria, along with the rest of the world is facing some significant challenges from health, wellbeing, social, education and economic perspectives. It is vitally important that the voice of young people is heard at this time, so plans for the future can reflect the needs of 16-24 year olds.

The Centre for Leadership Performance are working with Cumbria LEP, Inspira and other training and education providers to gather information and input from you and your peers so we can understand
1. how this crisis is impacting on you
2. how we can help you deal with the challenges you are facing

The information we gather will be used to understand the current situation from your perspective and to help shape plans, programmes and activities that will support you in the months to come. Individual replies will not be identified (it is completely anonymous) and we will be looking at collated data that can help inform decisions about our activities to support 16-24 year olds.
