Beyond Youth Custody launches two national surveys to inform research into resettlement of young women and girls

2 June 2014 | Tagged with the theme:

As part of our consultation work to support our research on the resettlement of girls and young women, we are conducting two national surveys.

  1. The first survey is to gather feedback from staff working in organisations or projects that are involved in resettlement work with girls or young women, or by professionals from public or other bodies who are involved in such work. Take the practitioners’ survey.
  2. The second survey is to gather feedback from girls and young women (up to the age of 25) who have recently left custody. This survey has been designed so it can be completed on any computer or hand-held device (including smart phones). The purpose of this survey is to find out more about what is important to young women leaving custody and what they might need help with, and what they think about the current services provided to them. Take the young women’s survey.

We would appreciate if practitioners could disseminate the link for the second survey to girls and young women that they work with. All those who respond to the second survey will be entered into a prize draw for a £100 store voucher. We anticipate holding the prize draw around the middle of July.

The surveys will stay “live” until 30 June 2014. If you want to contact us, please email us at or phone 020 7840 7247.

Completed surveys will be treated as confidential and will only be seen by the research team. Individuals and organisations will not be identified in any findings.
