Aged 14-25? A chance to shape your future & give your views to decision makers

Politicians and local councils would like to know what it’s like living as a young person in Kirklees.

The survey asks 14 to 25 year olds to give their honest views on topics such as careers advice, their health and wellbeing and current political topics, such as Brexit. These subjects affect all young people in our area, so we need as many people to take part to let their voices be heard.

How do I take part?

Why should I fill the survey in?

Cllr Peter Box, Leader of Wakefield Council is the current chair of Key Cities. He said:

“The Key Cities Changing the Future Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to listen to and engage with young people from Key Cities on the critical factors and ideas relevant to each of the themes.  For example: What is it like to be a young person living in a medium-sized city in terms of housing, transport, health and social care etc.

As a member of the Key Cities group (which represents ten per cent of the population’s economic interests), Kirklees Council is taking part in a major event to discuss how we can improve the lives of young people.”

The information we gather will be discussed at the ‘Changing the Future’ conference where Key Cities Leaders and senior representatives will listen to what we’ve found out, and discuss ideas and plans for new ways to support young people.

The survey closes on Wednesday 27 June 2018.
