Survey on advocacy services for children and young people
Why we're doing this survey
The Children's Commissioner has asked for an independent review of advocacy services that are currently available to children and young people in Jersey.
'Advocacy' is just another way of saying 'a person or people who can help you sort out difficult or upsetting things in your life'.
In order to help with the work of that review, we'd like to build as clear a picture as possible of how children and young people are currently using advocacy services in the Island.
Who can take part
For the purposes of this review, we are asking anyone up to the age of 24 to complete this survey. It should also be noted that, if you are under the age of 14, then parental consent may be required for some questions (this is indicated in the survey itself).
So if this sounds like you, and you have experience of, or even just a view on, advocacy services for children and young people in the Island, then we'd love to hear from you.
