#BeeWell launch new GM headline findings with our first in-person Coalition of Partners event

On the 30th March, we were delighted to host individuals representing a range of our Coalition of Partners for the launch of the Year 2 #BeeWell data! Over 40 people spent the afternoon at the People’s History Museum, to hear about the new data and discuss what we could do to address the headline findings developed with the #BeeWell Youth Steering Group.

Following introductions on the headline findings, everyone split into groups to discuss the following key themes:

  • Sleep
  • Inequalities in wellbeing
  • Good places to go 
  • Schools
  • Physical activity
  • Arts & culture

As part of the day, individuals wrote a pledge for how they would:

  • Listen to young people’s voices
  • Act together for change
  • Celebrate young people’s wellbeing

In the coming weeks, we will work with our partners on putting this into action. The themes discussed will also shape future research briefings from the #BeeWell team, with the first two to be published on physical activity and sleep

If you couldn’t make it last week but want to hear more from the team about the findings, contact for the details to join our virtual Coalition of Partners meeting on the 12th April at 4pm.

Or, explore the #BeeWell neighbourhood dashboard to find out more about the Year 2 data here. The new update to the dashboard allows you to see how survey responses have changed as Year 8s (2021) moved into Year 9 (2022), and make comparisons between Year 10 responses in 2021 and 2022.

Thank you to everyone who got involved our first-ever in-person event and committed their response to the Year 2 #BeeWell data!
