Help us to shape our new 5 year plan for Children & Young People

At Active Suffolk we are currently working to revise our offer to Children and Young People across the county by developing a new five year plan. As part of this work, we have teamed up with Healthwatch Suffolk to carry out some research and form a co-production so that local people can have their say!

Rather than making the decisions ourselves, we are working with Healthwatch Suffolk to gather insight from children and young people from school years, year 1 – 11 and we need your help.

The survey which has been created as part of this project is to be completed by parents and/or carers of children from year 1 – 3 and children and young people from years 3 - 11 in Suffolk. The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous and not linked to an individual's contact details or name in any way.

As part of this piece of work, two schools in Suffolk will be issued £300 of vouchers which can be used on PE and Sports equipment if they have 20 or more surveys completed and submitted from parents or pupils from the school.

To complete our short survey, contribute to the new plans and help your child's school to receive £300 of vouchers click HERE

In addition to the survey, we are also inviting people aged 14+ across Suffolk to work on a co-production to help shape the five year plans.

What's in it for you?

By taking part in co-production with Healthwatch & Active Suffolk, you will:

  • Gain skills and knowledge by working as equals in a group who feel passionate about active and healthy lives for all children in Suffolk.
  • Be part of something bigger that will impact how children can stay active over the next five years.
  • Gain experience that could lead to future opportunities in work or school.
  • Develop personal and communication skills like self-confidence, negotiation, networking, creativity and team building.

Finally as an incentive, Active Suffolk will be giving two Suffolk schools £300 to spend on PE equipment. For terms and conditions, please click the link below.
