Building on a background of the UNICEF Child‐Friendly Cities Initiative, Urban95 projects, European Best Practice evidence for children’s initiatives and work in British cities such as Aberdeen, Barnett, Cardiff, Derry & Strabane, Liverpool, Newcastle and Leeds, the Child-Friendly Gloucestershire Project aims to develop a child and young person-centred strategic framework which meets the UNICEF goals of centring the voices, needs, priorities and rights of children in public policy, programs and decisions. As such, this project sought to ascertain the views of children and young people aged 8‐25 years old about what is valued and what they would want to change about living in Gloucestershire and its districts. To do this, data was gathered from 532 respondents through a range of means (see Figure 1) during the summer and autumn 2019. This data was analysed using SPSS and NVivo by the lead researcher and by a group of mostly 20‐22 year-old students at the University of Gloucestershire. Whilst there are limitations to the data (see p4), the data does give a snapshot of views of young people in Gloucestershire.
