Join the TeenCovidLife Survey
Are you aged 12-17? Have your say about coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown and how it's affecting you. Find out more and start the survey here.
The British Science Association released survey results recently. It revealed that almost 9 out of 10 young people don't think scientists are talking to them about COVID-19. We want to change this. We're really interested in hearing from you!
Our TeenCovidLife survey is designed with 12-17 year olds in mind. We'll ask about how lockdown is affecting your school and home life. We also want to know how you feel about lockdown and how it's impacted you.

We are working with SHINE schools across Scotland. Schools in this network will have the information added to their SHINE folders.
If you have any questions, make sure you visit our Frequently Asked Questions. We've added a few that we think you might find the most interesting below:
The Scottish Schools Health and Wellbeing Improvement Research Network (SHINE) are based at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, IHW, University of Glasgow. They aim to support improvements in health and wellbeing amongst school-aged children by building a collaboration between schools, researchers and policy-makers.

Your parents will not be sent any information from us. We'll be sending schools information about the results of the survey. This is so that they can help their students to deal with any issues facing them. However, teachers will not know your personal answers to any of the questions.
We will share the results with other researchers, charities and government to help your voice be heard. We hope this will help those organisations understand what life is like for teenagers at the moment. We also hope it will help them to support young people.
Anyone aged 12-17 in Scotland can take part. If your teachers or friends at school don't know about it, please share it with them too.
TeenCovidLIfe is a survey for 12-17 year olds in Scotland only. If you are 18 or above, there is a different survey you can complete using using the link below:
