As you will know, we are running the largest ever survey of children in England – The Big Ask – to inform society’s recovery post-pandemic, and my agenda for the rest of my term as Children’s Commissioner.
It is critically important that The Big Ask hears from children in all parts of the country. In order to make the survey more representative, I want to hear from at least 5% of children and young people in every local authority. Some local authorities have already achieved this, so I know it is possible.
If your local authority’s response rate is lower, I would really appreciate your help by encouraging all children in your local area to complete the survey. You can help by:
If your local authority achieves at least a 5% response, then we should have enough data points to be able to provide you with disaggregated figures for your local authority on children’s aspirations, priorities and concerns for the future.
Thank you for all your help.
With best wishes,
Dame Rachel de Souza
Children’s Commissioner for England
