Youth wellbeing survey to launch

ceraCERA is to launch the ‘What’s Up: Youth Wellbeing Survey,’ to canvas young people’s response to the Canterbury earthquake recovery activity.

The new survey is a first – a youth-friendly version of CERA’s earlier Wellbeing Survey – and is designed to ensure the Christchurch youth voice has an impact on city’s recovery and rebuild activities. CERA uses the findings from their earlier survey daily in its decision-making processes and it is hoped the latest survey will help the organisation understand what is important to young people in the recovery efforts.

The Youth Wellbeing Survey will be available online for six weeks until 1 November and all 12-24-year-olds in greater Christchurch are eligible to complete it. The questions focus on their wellbeing, what they have experienced as a result of the earthquakes (both positives and negatives), as well as asking them about their future plans.

CERA hopes there will be a strong uptake for the survey, as they want to hear from as many young people as possible. Plus there are great prizes to throw into the mix, including a brand new computer, iTunes vouchers, Vodafone vouchers, Roxx, swimming pool vouchers and much more. Respondents could even win cheese toasties for lunch with Roger Sutton. So get involved whanau and influence the decision makers by participating and you may even be able to influence Roger Sutton directly over a cheese toasty!

Individuals are able to complete the survey from the CERA website www.cera.govt.nz
