In November and December 2017, Our staff conducted a survey consultation in schools, colleges and amongst its existing clients across the city. This set of consultations aimed to give the current generation of young people in particular, a platform to express the main issues affecting them in their lives.
The participants in the study were to ask two key questions:
1) What are the main issues affecting you as a young person? Or young people generally?
2) What services offered by YCSA and what projects or social topics covered on our programmes interest you the most?
Acknowledging that the pressures faced by young people change quickly overall and that the experiences of BME people can vary depending on circumstances, these surveys took a wide sample of responses from a large set of participants. The aim of the consultation in general was to provide an understanding of the needs of young people in Glasgow and those of BME young people in particular so that YCSA can make its projects more effective and useful for this group.
The full, final report which covers the findings of this survey is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SuaXl_sAnORaSJa7PZycnz1SI2E9pPwJ/view
It is accessible as a useful resource for anyone interested in young people’s opinions and involved in improving the prospects for young people in Glasgow.
