Who can become a #BeeWell Coalition Partner?

Any organisation – however big or small – who commits to responding to what the young people tell us can become a #BeeWell partner. These are organisations from across sectors – you can see the current list of coalition partners here

Why should I become a #BeeWell Coalition partner?

We bring our coalition partners together three times a year to hear about survey data, how it is being used and to shape collectively with them how we will all respond to what young people tell us. You will have first access to the data by neighbourhood when we produce it in March of each year. It is a chance to be part of a ground-breaking programme, to listen to young people, to act collectively with them and others for change, to network with organisations from across sectors and to be part of a movement that is committed to improving young people’s wellbeing – both locally and nationally.

Who do I contact if I want to find out more about becoming a #BeeWell Coalition partner?

If you want to find out more about becoming a partner, please email: for the #BeeWell Programme in Greater Manchester for the #BeeWell Programme in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton

If you’re not based in either of the two locations but want to get involved, please do still get in touch on the email addresses above. We’d love to hear from you.

What happens after submitting the surveys?

After the conclusion of the survey window, the #BeeWell team prepare the submitted data ready for the feedback reporting stage of the annual cycle. Feedback reports will be made available to schools in late January/early February in a given year, and neighbourhood data will be made available to partners in March.

Does this research have ethical approval?
