Wokingham Youth Community Safety Survey


Young people in the Wokingham Borough are being invited to take part in a special survey to highlight what crime and disorder issues affect them, and what they would like done about it.

The Youth Community Safety Survey, organised by Wokingham Borough Council, will run from April 15 to May 24 and is open to all 11 to 18-year-olds attending a school in the borough.

It is part of the council’s annual Safe Communities Survey which gathers the views of residents. Although adult response rates are excellent, not enough young people take part, so a youth version of the survey has been devised to overcome this.

The survey will ask questions more appropriate for younger people to find out what issues affect them, what they would like the council, police, and other services to do to make them feel safer, as well as issues they think are important.

The survey has been developed with the help of students from The Piggott School in Wargrave, who used discussion forums and feedback sessions in class to shape the final questions and answer options.

It will be distributed to young people via their schools, but will also be available online via a secure site which only the pupils can access.

The schools taking part include Addington, Bulmershe, Emmbrook, Forest, Foundry College, Holt, Maiden Erlegh, Oakbank, Piggott, St Crispins, Southfield and Waingels College.
