Take the Leaders’ Poll for 2018 Synod

‘If you work with or care for young people aged between 13 – 29 we want to hear your view of young people today’. (NB: Link is now correct!)

The Bishops Conference of England and Wales is consulting with young people and those who regularly engage with them in preparation for a gathering hosted by Pope Francis in October 2018. The theme of which is youth, faith and vocational discernment. They have already launched the Mega Youth Poll for young people to tell them about their lives, faith and vocational discernment and would now like to hear from you, if you’re a parent, teacher, chaplain, youth worker, priest  – or anyone who regularly engages with young people aged between 13 and 29 years old,. (And if you’re 29 or under as well, please do both polls, wearing your different hats!)

It should take you between 5-10 minutes to complete however this may vary depending on whether you care for or work with young people in more than one type of setting. The survey does not ask for your name and your email address will be separated from the rest of the information you provide so that your responses remain anonymous. Should you have any queries, please contact synod2018@cbcew.org.uk

Although there is a link that enables viewers to go to the poll please do include https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/cymfed-youth-poll in your communications so they can access the poll directly.


NB: The closing date for the Mega Youth Poll is being extended to 30th June!
