Havering's #BeeWell Youth Wellbeing Census
The results of the Havering Youth Wellbeing Census have now been published on the Havering Data Intelligence Hub.
The Havering Youth Wellbeing Census is part of Havering Council’s commitment to amplifying the voice of young people in the borough.
The census was based on the #BeeWell survey and locally adapted and delivered by UCLPartners in collaboration with Havering Council.
The #BeeWell survey was originally developed as part of the #BeeWell programme, an initiative originating in Greater Manchester that combines academic expertise with youth-led change to make the wellbeing of young people everybody’s business.
The Havering Youth Wellbeing Census used core questions from the #BeeWell survey, plus additional questions to meet locally identified needs as voiced by Havering’s young people and the local organisations and services that support them.
10 schools took part in the Havering Youth Wellbeing Census during June and July 2023.
This was a total of 2,287 students across year groups 8 and 10, representing 36 percent coverage of the target demographic.
The results of the survey will help Havering Council to understand the state of wellbeing across age groups and consider actions to support young people’s mental wellbeing.
Participating schools have each received an interactive report which allows them to compare the results for their school to those of all schools.
These schools have also been offered a 1:1 session with a consultant from the Child Outcomes Research Consortium to talk through their results and think about next steps.
This feedback will inform and complement the work that schools are already undertaking to support the wellbeing of their pupils.
The neighbourhood dashboard allows people to view the results across Havering as a whole and split up by our three health localities (North, South and Central).
The dashboard was designed by UCLPartners alongside Havering’s Insight team.
The dashboard includes intuitive data visualisations and the ability to explore the data at different levels eg year group, gender, free school meal eligibility, special educational needs status.
A youth steering group will take an important role in interpreting the results and designing and advocating for local responses to the findings.
The intention is that the data will be used to inspire a place-based response to young people’s wellbeing. This will require collective action across communities, businesses, the voluntary sector, the health sector, government and schools.
