About The Big Ask

The Big Ask is a survey for children and young people aged 4–17 in England. We’ve split the survey into different age groups, so you can fill in a version appropriate for your age. We’ve also made easy-read ‘accessible’ versions as well as a version for care leavers.

Why you should take part

This is your chance to have your say on the things that matter to you. You can tell us what your life is like, what you want in the future, and anything you think is holding you back.

We’ll use what you say to tell the people who run the country or your local area what you think needs to change to make your life better.

Your privacy

We won’t ask for your name, phone number or email, and we’ll keep what you tell us safe and private – it won’t be shared with anyone else. You don’t have to answer any question if you don’t want to.
