The Big Conversation

Each year, the Youth Commission speak to young people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to get their concerns, views and ideas.

The Big Conversation 2020 is now open!

We are now consulting on our priorities: exploitation, hate crime, and serious violence. Take the survey now (it only takes 3 minutes)!


The Big Conversation 2019

Last year, we spoke to 2,645 young people about their concerns and our priorities.  Here’s how we did:

An overview of the people that responded to our Big Conversation: 16% were aged under 14, 19% were 14-16, 37% were 17-18, and 21% were 19-25. 7% of people didn't give their age.

  • Our 35 members helped run and attend 87 events across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, in total volunteering 820 hours of their time.
  • We worked with 39 different partners, and 78 people attended our recommendations conference and pledged to help us deliver them.


The Youth Commission used the Big Conversation responses from 2018 to reply to the Department of Education.
