University of Manchester: Youth-led #BeeWell uncovers major insights into young people’s experiences across Greater Manchester

Young people across Greater Manchester have places to spend their free time and feel they belong at their school, according to the results of a survey released today.

Greater Manchester’s #BeeWell programme, which focuses on young people’s wellbeing, carried out the biggest survey of its kind in the country in Autumn 2021. More than 160 schools took part in the initiative in its first year, in an enormous region-wide push to support young people’s wellbeing – led by young people themselves.

Young people co-designed the #BeeWell survey, launched it in schools, and have worked with researchers to identify key findings and priority areas of research. The survey received just shy of 40,000 responses, representing approximately 60% of all young people in Year 8 and Year 10 in the city region.
