Closed 27 Mar 2020

Opened 14 Feb 2020

Results expected 29 May 2020

Feedback expected 5 Jun 2020


Working with the Town Council, the Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) have set this survey up to explore what young people living in or near Penrith think about what's available for them in the town. The survey is available online via the Town Council's website and social media platforms. Links will also be found on social media used by young people. Hard copies of the survey are available from YAP Members, Penrith Library and the Town Council Office.  

Why We Are Consulting

Penrith Town Council is working with the Youth Advisory Panel to gather opinions from young people aged 14-25 who live in or near the town. The goal is to reach better understanding of young people's aspirations and needs and, wherever possible, work in partnership with them and others to make a difference in the lives of younger generations in Penrith.

What Happens Next

All responses will be anonymised. When results are analysed, feedback from the survey will be considered by the 3 Town Councillors who are supporting the Youth Advisory Panel. Any recommendations will be discussed by the Youth Panel and any appropriate partners and, where appropriate, will be taken forward for consideration by the Town Council.
