The Big Ask ran for six weeks, and is now closed

We’d like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who took part, shared their views, experiences and ideas with us, and those who really helped spread the word far and wide in schools and on social media.

We have received over half a million responses from children and young people, from every part of England. That makes this by far the biggest ever survey of children in this country. What we’ve heard will shape our Childhood Commission – and we’ll make sure that those in power who make decisions about children’s lives know what children’s priorities are for the future.

We couldn’t have done this without the help of so many people – from parents and teachers to charities, youth organisations and local councils. Most of all, we couldn’t have done it without every child who filled in the survey. Thank you!

If you’d like to be notified when we publish the results of the survey, as well as about other activities from our office, you can sign up to our newsletter here:
