Suffolk New College are working in partnership with Suffolk County Council youth services to help get a better idea of the services in place for young people in Suffolk as well as how these services are rated by those who have utilised them.

This will help SNC & SCC to improve the services available and look to provide services widely requested. The survey is aimed at those 25 and under. The answers you give will be completely anonymous and will only be used by SNC Student Support services and the Local Safeguarding Children Board.

The survey can be completed online here: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/YPSafeguarding/

You’re opinions and views are greatly appreciated and will help form and improve services for young people over the coming years.

If you have any further questions regarding the survey please don’t hesitate to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or the college This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
