Have your say with the Big Ask

Published Thursday, 22nd April 2021

‘The Big Ask’ is the largest ever consultation held with children and young people and is asking them to look ahead to their future and what support they feel they may need going forward.

It’s an exciting opportunity to think big and it’s a chance for every child in England to have their voice heard.

Tina Russell, Interim Director of Children Services at Worcestershire County Council said:

“The views and thoughts of the children and young people of Worcestershire have been and will always be a key asset to helping us develop and deliver our services that really make a difference to their lives. This is an great opportunity to influence the same at a national level so I’d encourage all to take part”

The Children’s Commissioner for England,  Dame Rachel de Souza will use what children and young people tell her to show the Government what they think and what they need to live happier lives. 

The Big Ask forms part of a wider once-in-a-generation review into children’s lives, being undertaken by The Children’s Commissioner.

The wider review is called the  ‘The Childhood Commission’ and it will identify the barriers preventing children reaching their full potential and propose policy solutions to address them.
