Gathering input on how COVID has affected children and young people

The Australian Human Rights Commission is seeking input from children and young people aged nine to seventeen to share their stories of how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their health and wellbeing, and how they have coped. Input is sought about the unique challenges they have faced over the past two years and the social, emotional, educational, and other impacts they have experienced. Parents, carers and grandparents are invited to complete a separate survey. The surveys will help to inform the support services that children and their families need as we continue to deal with the pandemic, and as we emerge from it. Both surveys are confidential, and children’s privacy will be strictly protected. Access the surveys. The survey closes Sunday, 20th March.
