The Kingston and Richmond Youth Council is passionate about making change and listening to the voices of other young people.
They are conducting a survey of young women who live or go to secondary school or college in Kingston or Richmond. This survey is to gather data to establish if young women are experiencing sexual harassment in their school or college. It is completely anonymous.
Please complete the survey here: https://surveys.achievingforchildren.org.uk/s/KRYCSurveyJune2021/
Watch Elizabeth, a member of the Youth Council, explain why they would like young women to complete the survey:
