Are you aged 12-17, living in Scotland? Want to share your thoughts about the COVID-19 pandemic? Our TeenCovidLife 3 survey is open now. Find out how you can take part here.
The first TeenCovidLife survey launched in May last year. We invited 12-17 year olds across Scotland to take part. Over 5,000 of you got involved. Since then, we launched TeenCovidLife 2. Now we want to hear from you a third time!
In TeenCovidLife 3, we want to know how you're doing now. We want to know what you think about vaccines, returning to school a second time and how you feel about planning for your future.
If you gave us an email in our first or second survey, you should have had an invite to survey 3. This is a personal link. It will make the survey shorter. If you didn't receive this link, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you didn't give us your email, or didn't take part in survey 1 or 2, you can still join. If you're aged 12-17 and living in Scotland, you can get involved by clicking the link below:
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 helpful 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.
