industry news Tuesday 12 Apr 2022 @ 11:52 Covid Survey Case Study - Coronavirus and Me

Over 23,700 children and young people aged 3-18 have their say

For many of us, school was the time of our lives. It’s the time when we’re most socially active - surrounded by friends every day with no responsibilities or distractions.

But in March 2020, that care-free existence was taken away from children and young people across the UK.

Young people’s education and social lives were severely disrupted.

How did they feel about it? What affect was it having? How was their mental health? Was online education doing its job?

That’s where the Coronavirus and Me survey came in – envisioned by the Children’s Commissioner for Wales and created by Snap Surveys.

Snap Surveys is a leader in survey software and research projects since 1981, based in Bristol.

The survey at a glance:

  • A total of 23,719 children and young people (aged 3-18) participated in the project and shared their views.
  • The Snap Surveys Projects team used interactive online surveys (imagery, audio, video etc.) to obtain responses from all children – regardless of any disabilities they might have.
  • 72% of children were concerned with not being able to see friends.
  • Rather surprisingly – 51% were worried about exams being cancelled! This would suggest the younger generation is keen to progress academically.

Driving Wales’ Covid strategy: The survey results were considered by the Welsh government when forming their Covid-19 strategies throughout the pandemic.

Importantly, the reporting software supports us to breakdown information by personal characteristics. This has been essential for us so that we can see not only how the pandemic is affecting children, but if the impact is greater for particular groups. This is vital info to know how best to support children through this time.  Professor Sally Holland, Children’s Commissioner for Wales
