Health and well-being of young people in East Northamptonshire


YOUNG Healthwatch Northamptonshire is conducting a survey asking 11 to 19-year-old about their physical health, lifestyle and emotional health in East Northamptonshire.

The survey includes questions on how young people engage with leisure activities locally.

The survey asks young people about their health and habits and what they think about some health and emotional issues that affect young people. It gives young people a chance to let us know what works for them and what they would like to see changed.

The information collected from the survey will help inform wellbeing services in East Northamptonshire and help local NHS and children’s services in the planning of health and care for young people. We also want to hear about how young people access leisure activities locally. A report will be published later this year.

Schools and students in East Northants will be asked to take part in the anonymous and confidential survey, which includes contact information for support if they feel that themselves or someone they know is or may be affected by the subjects asked in the survey.
