For the third consecutive year, NFER was commissioned by Kent County Council (KCC) to conduct an independent survey of children and young people, to gather their views and experiences across a range of issues, and to inform planning, service development and review at strategic level, local level and in Kent schools.
The survey aimed to:
provide information on children and young people’s needs and priorities across the county, to inform future planning of services
- assist KCC in meeting their 2010 target to ‘listen to young people’s views and opinions and develop their ideas to improve education and life in Kent’
- enable comparisons to be made with the findings from the NFER 2006/07 and 2007/08 surveys in Kent and with the Tellus4 national survey.
