Asking rangatahi what they need from sexual health services in Waitaha

* Update - This survey has been extended and is now open until 9 June. 

A survey has been created to gather thoughts from rangatahi / young people about improvements they would like to see made to sexual and reproductive health services in Waitaha / Canterbury. 

The survey is part of a project being facilitated by CCN’s Child and Youth Workstream and follows a wānanga - a forum to observe, listen and learn, which was held in March and attended by consumers, their whānau and people who support rangatahi across the health and education system. 

Child and Youth Workstream Facilitator Marie Mitchell says it’s all about making sexual health services more accessible for rangatahi. 

“To guide us in this mahi, we want to hear from young people about how they currently access these services (if they do), what kind of experiences they’ve had, and how they would like to see things working in the future,” says Marie.

“We want to hear from a variety of young people from different parts of the community, so are asking people to share the survey link through their networks and display the poster (download here) in waiting rooms and spaces where young people visit.”

The answers will be totally anonymous, securely stored, and will only be used to help improve the way sexual health services are provided to young people in Waitaha. 

Young people can give as little, or as much information as they feel comfortable, and can abandon the survey at any time.  

For those that choose to include their contact details, they can go in the draw to win a Pak n Save voucher.

The survey has been extended and is now open until 9 June and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Access the survey here
