Ashburton Youth Council Survey

Ashburton Youth Council is calling for people aged between 14-24 years to have their say in a survey on youth priorities in the Ashburton District.

Aileen Campbell, Council's Project Officer, says the survey has come about as a result of a Conversation Café the Youth Council recently held for 14-24 year olds. 

"The purpose of the Conversation Cafe was to help establish what young people like about living in the district and to work out what they think could potentially be done to make it an even better place for youth," says Ms Campbell.

"The suggestions and priorities that came out of the Conversation Café have been incorporated into the survey and we would now like to see as many young people as possible take part," she says. 

"This is an ideal opportunity for 14-24 year olds to let us know what their priorities are - whether they are looking for more services targeting youth, more events – sporting and/or cultural or particular facilities.

"Once we have collated the survey results and established what the youth priorities are, we will be in a position to develop a long-term plan about how we can potentially bring some of the suggestions for youth to fruition over the next several years," says Ms Campbell.

By filling in the survey, respondents have the chance to win one of five movie passes.
