Are you aged 12-17, living in Scotland? TeenCovidLife survey 2 is launching soon. Find out more about how you can get involved, when we launch, here.
In May, we launched the TeenCovidLife survey. It was designed with 12-17 year olds in mind. We invited young people across Scotland to take part and over 5,000 volunteers got involved. We asked about how lockdown had been affecting their school and home life. We also wanted to know how they felt about lockdown and how it's impacted them. If you'd like to see the results of this survey, click the link below:
TeenCovidLife is closed now. However, we have some exciting news. In mid-August we will be launching TeenCovidLife 2! If you took part in our first survey, and gave us your email, you should receve an invite to survey 2. This is a personal link. It means you don't have to re-enter some information and the survey will be shorter.
If you didn't give us your email or didn't take part in survey 1 you can still get involved. We'll make a link available on this page when we go live. If you're aged 12-17, living in Scotland, you can take part. Keep an eye out for the link soon.
We are working with SHINE schools across Scotland. Schools in this network will get 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 questions 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. If you would like your school to join, click the below link:
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.
