Young People to give their views on Gateshead

Young People views

Children and young people across Gateshead are being asked to say what they think about the borough. 

We are asking young people to answer 6 key questions, including what they like about the borough, what they would change and what would make things better for them. The last time we undertook this exercise we received thousands of responses from children of all ages, which were used to form a huge paper chain. This time due to the coronavirus pandemic and to be more environmentally friendly the project is being done virtually but we hope young people will be as keen to take part. 

Tell us what you think about Gateshead

Councillor Gary Haley, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said "It's really important that we understand how our young people are feeling about where they live, so that their views can help to influence the decisions that impact on them and the communities in which they live. 

"Our young people are the future of Gateshead and we want to give each of them the opportunity to thrive. To best do this we need to hear what is important to them, so I'd like to encourage all our young people to take part. "
