Young people in Thanet could be in line to win one of over 100 prizes, just by taking part in the new youth consultation.

The council carries out the survey every few years to look at the services and support available to young people. It’s a pull-out in the centre of the summer issue of Youth Matters, which is distributed to secondary schools, youth clubs and organisations across Thanet and local supermarkets.

The survey is aimed at anyone aged 11 to 19 years old and focuses on a range of issues, including what young people think about living in Thanet, what concerns them, how safe they feel and how they want to find out about events in the area.

Anyone who fills in the survey and returns it will be entered into a prize draw and could win one of over 100 prizes. These include iTunes vouchers, vouchers for Joss Bay Surf School, skateboarding and rock-climbing at Revolutions Skate Park and junior gym and roller skating passes from Thanet Leisureforce.

Cllr. Chris Wells, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “We want to hear what young people think about life in Thanet and what’s available to them. It’s your opportunity to tell us what we should focus on. Just by doing that gives you the chance to win one of more than 100 great prizes.”

A series of events are being held to promote both the activities on offer this summer and the latest issue of Youth Matters. Anyone who comes along to the Ramsgate Carnival on Sunday 25 July will be able to fill in the survey there. Other events where the survey can be filled in during the summer include the Engage Summer Blast at Dane Park on Thursday 5 August from 2pm to 6pm and Beach Blast at Joss Bay on Wednesday 18 August, from 4pm to 8pm. All these events are free.

The survey can also be filled in online at the Youth Matters website at www.thanetyouthmatters.co.uk
