National Study of Health and Wellbeing: Children and Young People 2020
Thank you for participating in the 2020 National Study of Health and Wellbeing: Children and Young People.
We contacted everyone who took part in the 2017 study and said that they would be happy to be contacted again about any further research. Participants were invited to take part in an online questionnaire in July 2020. This study looked at the health, development and wellbeing of children and young people aged 5-22 in England in 2020. It also aimed to understand how children and young people are being affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We worked with the Office for National Statistics on this study, and were commissioned to do so by NHS Digital, with funding from the Department of Health and Social Care.
We asked about a range of topics to do with development and wellbeing, as well as thoughts, feelings and experiences during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. By asking about these topics we want to improve understanding of how different experiences can impact on health and wellbeing.
What you told us will help inform and improve local and national health and support services and we are very grateful for your participation in that study.
An anonymised report on the findings from the 2020 study was published in October 2020 and you can read about the findings here.
