Great Places Housing Group, in collaboration with Knutsford Town Council and Cheshire East Youth Service, is seeking the views of young people on what changes they’d like to see in the town.

The feedback collected will be instrumental in shaping and co-designing future youth services in the area.

Becky Banks, Great Places’ community project manager for Longridge, said: “Great Places is an organisation rooted in social purpose and we’re committed to supporting customers to build strong sustainable communities.

“Feedback from a recent consultation we carried out with residents and stakeholders in our Longridge neighbourhood highlighted the need for improved youth services in the area.

“We set up the survey in collaboration with the Town Council and Cheshire East Youth Service to understand what young people themselves want.

“We’re delighted with the response so far, but we’d like to hear from as many young people as possible to tell us about what they want.

“It’s quick and will only take a few minutes of your time to complete, but your input could make a lasting impact on the community.”

To take part visit by Friday, April 26.

Adam Keppel-Green, town clerk at Knutsford Town Council, said: “The Town Council is committed to improving the provision of services and facilities for the younger members of our community and this survey will help guide us to ensure their needs are being met.

“The more responses we get the better, so please do encourage any young people you have contact with to take five minutes to share their views”.

The survey is open to young people aged 5-19.
