Malmesbury Community Area Youth Engagement

To present the results of the recent youth survey to students of Malmesbury School, and to debate and discuss the current provision of youth services in the Malmesbury community area and how these might be shaped in the future.


Penny Bell, Community Engagement Manager, presented the results of the recent youth survey to 45 students from Malmesbury School.


Discussion and debate took place regarding some of the main issues arising from the survey, which included the need for indoor sports provision, desire for access to an astro-turf facility, support around mental health and exam pressures, and a preference to attend self-defence training. The students’ comments would be collated and fed back to the Area Board via the Local Youth Network and would be reported back to the students shortly. The students were keen that another, similar sessions should be repeated so that issues can be explored further. It was also agreed that the youth survey should be extended in an attempt to encourage more responses from older students.
