An insight into the views and needs of young people in West Oxfordshire

Anyone interested in the needs of local young people may like to know that West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC) is about to publish a Youth Needs Assessment (YNA). This follows a paper survey delivered through schools in the District with the aim of capturing young people’s voices and opinions.

The YNA records the views of young people (11-25) about a wide range of issues, including mental health, physical activity, opportunities, safety and covid-19. WODC is conscious that young people were disproportionately affected by the pandemic and wants to take action in the light of the needs revealed in the YNA.

The YNA will be the subject of a Webinar on Wednesday 22 March between 2pm and 4pm on which spaces can be booked via Eventbrite. WODC hopes that the event will provide an insight into how young people experience life within West Oxfordshire, the issues they face and challenges they overcome.

A copy of the Youth Needs Assessment can be obtained by emailing the WODC’s Community Wellbeing Team at .
