Children aged from 4 to 17 are being asked to share their views as part of The Big Ask, which runs until 28 May 2021.
The “largest ever survey of children and young people in England”, The Big Ask wants children to share their views on what they think needs to change to improve their lives.
The Big Ask was launched by Dame Rachel de Souza, the Children’s Commissioner for England. The role of the Children’s Commissioner is to work to improve the lives of children, and to speak on their behalf.
The survey’s feedback will be used to tell the government what children in England think, making this a unique opportunity for children and young people to be heard by the people in charge. No names or contact information will be collected, so taking part is anonymous.
The survey is available in various versions for different age groups:
- The Big Ask survey for ages 4 to 5.
- The Big Ask survey for ages 6 to 8.
- The Big Ask survey for ages 9 to 12.
- The Big Ask survey for ages 13 to 17.
Telford & Wrekin Council has asked all schools in the Borough to make The Big Ask part of their lessons.
