As a parent you may be searching for a little more information to help you understand what what we are doing and how your child/children can get involved. 

Information on the Study

About the Study:    

  • The Foundation’s study - the ‘Barnet YOUth Voice Survey’, is a needs-analysis survey conducted amongst 11-19-year olds in the borough of Barnet. 

  • This is a peer-led study; in which we will train and enable ‘Young Champions’ and Peer Researchers from schools and community groups to engage with their peers, in order to identify and understand young people’s concerns, aspirations and challenges within the borough.      


Purpose of Study:   

  • We want to hear the wider voice of young people in Barnet, especially the seldom heard. The Barnet YOUth Voice Survey will be a catalyst to attracting additional funding to the borough; funnelled directly into the areas where our young people have identified a need.     

  • The study aims to inform and provide evidence for pressing issues encountered by young people in the borough of Barnet. It will identify gaps in social provisions, help shape activities and services, allow for improvements and interventions.  



  • We will conduct peer-led youth focus groups in order to determine the themes that the Barnet YOUth Voice Survey will cover.    

  • We aim for the survey to be filled out by a minimum 10% of 11-19 year olds in the borough, through a combination of students, activity group members and YBF member organisations.   

  • Key to this are our Young Champions, who will focus on ensuring that participating schools and organisations enable young people to fill out the survey, and to help participating young people understand the importance and impact of their responses.   

  • Once the main survey is completed, we will conduct peer-led youth focus groups to discuss findings in a wider context.    


Parents’/Guardians’ Involvement:   

  • We need parents to understand the crucial role they play in the Barnet Youth Voice Survey, as we will need your support in order to encourage young people to fill out the survey.

  • Encourage your young people to stand as Young Champions or Peer Researchers. 

  • We would like to reiterate that the survey is completely anonymous; your child’s name will not be recorded with their results 



  • Following the end of data collection, we will have a period of research analysis until the end of February 2020.  

  • The analysed data will then be collated, allowing an interactive data search tool to be produced.  

  • A launch event will be held at the end of March 2020 (tentative).
