Youth Recreation & Armadillo

Yate Town Council has provided amenities for the growing number of Yate teenagers. Peg Hill Skate Park is an example of this provision, as is the teenage seating at Long’s Drive.

Yate Town Council wants your help to find out – what is life like, for young people living in Yate?

Are you a young person in Yate or do you know a young person in Yate.

We need the Young people of Yate to complete this survey for us.

*This questionnaire is for young people aged up to 18years old, and neurodiverse young people aged up to 25years old, who live in Yate, South Gloucestershire.*
