Surveys for young people and carers

The Scottish Government has commissioned ARC Scotland to map the availability of planning and support for people aged 14 - 25 years who have additional support needs in Scotland.

A central part of the work is to ask young people and their parents / carers about their experiences during this time important of their lives. To do this, we have developed two surveys, one for young people and the other for parents and carers.

It should take between 10 – 30 minutes and must be completed by Friday 11 November 2016. You won't be asked your name or address, and nobody will be able to identify you as the person who filled out the survey.

It is fine to ask someone to help you to fill out this survey.

People with additional support needs can find transitions difficult and a large number end up in negative situations - such as token employment and inappropriate education opportunities, limited support services and unable to full fill their ambitions.
