Thinking about my life

Thank-you to everyone who had their say!

Thousands of young people from across the UK have now taken part in The Children’s Society’s Good Childhood Inquiry by telling us what’s important to them, what problems they face and what changes would make things better.

The inquiry’s panel of leading experts will now meet to look at and discuss what children and young people have told us. At the end of the inquiry in February 2009 the panel will come up with a list of things we can do to make things better for all children and young people. We will then talk to the Government and other organisations about how to make these changes.

What you told us about values

We asked you lots of questions about your values and what you believe in.

Dame Ellen MacArthur says: 'You're the real experts on about what it's like to grow up in the UK today. The Children's Society wants to know what matters to you... So go on - let them know today!
