Health and Wellbeing Census

Dumfries and Galloway's health and wellbeing census to help transform children's futures.

Children and young people in Dumfries and Galloway are invited to have their say that will influence how local services for children and families should be delivered in the future. 

Pupils in Primary 5 to Secondary 6 will be given the opportunity over the next few months to take part in a short survey during class time.  

The Scottish Government Health and Wellbeing Census asks children and young people about a wide range of themes and topics including school, physical activity, eating and drinking, social media, emotional and mental wellbeing, friendships and other health behaviours.  The survey will be used to look at overall levels and patterns of health and wellbeing in order to help schools understand their needs and for the Council to plan local services.  

Schools will send letters to parents and carers to provide further details about the health and wellbeing census which takes place in schools during the 2021/22 school session.
