Belonging from the Beginning: a survey for parents/carers

Closed 30 Nov 2020

Opened 6 Oct 2020


This is a survey for expectant parents and parents/carers of children aged 0-5 years.

A group of parents (including young parents) have developed this survey to gather the views and experiences of expectant parents and parents/ carers of children aged 0-5. We want to know how you and your child feel about ‘belonging’ in Bristol. Your feedback will influence an overarching plan for children and families across the city. This will be known as the ‘Belonging Strategy’. 

What does it mean to ‘belong’? We see belonging as a sense of fitting in, feeling welcomed and represented and being respected and valued in a group, situation or place. It is a feeling that can enable individuals to contribute and make things happen.

The Belonging Strategy is being written about you and for you, so help us influence it. It will feed into all new developments for children and families across the city.

The survey will be live for 8 weeks (6 October - 30 November) and you can enter a prize draw if you wish.

Should you have any questions related to the survey please contact
