We’re still listening – Take Note 2

Take Note was the youth consultation we commissioned in 2016.  Many of the Hub’s initiatives have been shaped by what children and young people told us.  We’re now launching Take Note 2 so we can hear the voices of even more children and young people.  Throughout spring and early summer, our researcher, Nell Farrally, will be visiting schools and young people’s groups to gather views about music making in the county – but anyone can get involved by completing an online questionnaire.

Children and young people can click here to fill in an online questionnaire – it can be done on a computer, tablet or smartphone. If you’re a parent or carer, please support your child to have their say (there’s also an option for parents and carers to complete the questionnaire giving your views).  Anyone who completes the questionnaire could win a £20 voucher.

If you work with children and young people, we’d urge you to let those you work with know about the questionnaire – and support them to complete it.  Please look out for posters and flyers about the questionnaire which you could share – and help us to promote social media posts.  Youth groups and school music departments could consider if computers could be made available for young people to complete the questionnaire.  Associate Organisation Riverbank Studios, who hosted a focus group for their young musicians as part of the first consultation in 2016, recently said, “the previous report was very useful to us and helped support funding applications as evidence for a need for more music services in the area, so we’re happy to offer any help we can with the consultation again”.
