The Big Ask lets children share their views

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 Big Ask LogoThe “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.

You can find out more about The Big Ask on the FAQ page.

The survey is available in various versions for different age groups:

Over-18s care leavers, parents, and people who work with children can also share their views.

Telford & Wrekin Council has asked all schools in the Borough to make The Big Ask part of their lessons.
