Future Planning for Young People

A VoiceBox x Parent Zone Survey *CLOSED*

Tell us how you feel about your future

VoiceBox is run by young people for young people. You tell us about the things you care about and our job is to make sure your voices are heard. We've been asked by Parent Zone - a social enterprise that supports families - to find out what you think about the future. They want to know how supported you are/were in planning your next steps after school and what you think to the career advice you received (or didn't). They want to know what's missing and what might help. That's where you come in. By answering this short survey you will be helping to shape support for other young people. It'll only take about 5 minutes to complete and any information you give us will be shared anonymously. Please be as honest as possible - that way we can tell it like it is.

As a thank you for taking part in this survey, you will have the chance to win a £25 Amazon voucher. Please leave your email address at the end of the survey if you would like to be entered for the prize draw. We won't do anything else with your data but we would like to keep in touch so please fill out the form on the site if you want to be part of the VoiceBox community.
