Youth Impact Survey
Whittlesea Community Connections are seeking to capture the impact the Covid-19 Pandemic has had for young people across the City of Whittlesea. We are hoping to hear from as many young people and children as possible. With the insight gained from this research WCC can work out how best to respond to young people’s needs.
