Over the last six years The Children’s Society has been engaged in a pioneering research programme exploring what children think and feel about their lives. Our research has allowed us to identify six priorities for children's well-being and factors affecting these six aspects of children's lives that determine their well-being.

Portsmouth survey of children and young people 2014

Our survey provides a unique insight into the lives of children and young people aged seven to 18 living in Portsmouth. Over 4,100 children and young people in 16 primary schools, six secondary schools, two colleges and one Special Educational Needs school participated in the survey.

The aim of undertaking the survey is to identify the aspects of life where children in Portsmouth are doing well and those where they are not doing so well, in order to identify potential local priorities for improving well-being.
