Public COVID support for youth work
What is this survey about, and who is it for?
This survey is about any public support you as a youth worker or your youth work organisation may have received during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Youth work in this context is understood as working with and for young people in a variety of contexts and spaces, on a wide range of themes relevant to young people, and through a diversity of youth work structures and methods. This information will help us understand the resources made available to youth work through any level of government as a response to the coronavirus pandemic. The survey is conducted by the RAY Network – the open Network for the Research-based Analysis of European Youth Programmes. Whether you are (normally) enjoying the benefits of youth work, or (normally) offering or organising youth work: we want to hear from you, and would like to thank you for your time!
What do we mean by public support?
What we mean by public support is publicly funded support for youth work provided through governmental structures at any level (local, regional, national, European). This support could be related to finances, mentoring, trainings, donations, etc. that enabled you and/or your organisation to continue providing services to your target youth groups.
What do we mean by organisation?
What we mean by organisation can be a group, network, an administration, a department, a team, or a collective of like-minded individu-als working toward a common purpose of youth work. Your organisation can be small, medium, large or any size in between.
How will we handle your response?
We use the open-source survey software LimeSurvey for this survey, which we host on our own server. We will not ask you for any personal details that could identify you, such as your name, date of birth, physical or electronic address. We do not track your click pattern or online behaviour in any way. We use only first-party, non-persistent cookies so that we can keep track of your responses until you submit all of them.
We do not store your IP number used to access the survey, or the referrer URL that brought you here. If you wish, you can also use a TOR browser to access the survey.
At the beginning of the survey, we ask a few optional questions that will help us to analyse and interpret the survey results better. We would be happy if you answer some of them – but you are free to skip them entirely and submit your response, just as you prefer.
How long will this take?
It will likely take about 10 minutes to respond to the survey.
