Minor Choices, Major Voices!

Belfast Youth Forum (BYF) members are working with Dr Jonny Byrne from Ulster University on a piece of research titled 'Minor Choices, Major Voices' which looks at the experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic young people living in Belfast.

Young people from BYF have created a survey centred on five themes:

  • A sense of belonging
  • Racism and prejudice
  • School life
  • Living in Belfast
  • Changes you would like to see

We want to hear your views on all aspects of living in Belfast.

We will analyse the results of the survey and present a report with recommendations, made by the young people, on how Belfast can be a more culturally diverse city. Your voice will help shape and influence future efforts to improve lives within the city.

We’re inviting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic young people, aged 13 – 18 and living in Belfast, to take part in our survey (please see survey link below). The survey will be available to complete from 12th – 30th April 2021.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. You do not need to give your personal contact details and all responses are confidential. We will use the findings from the survey to inform a report, which will outline the key issues, views and perspectives of young respondents.

We would like to thank you for your time. If you have any questions on the survey, please contact belfastyouthforum@belfastcity.gov.uk

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Within the Belfast City Council Youth Forum (BYF), the Diversity sub-group are engaged in a research project which aims to explore the issues faced by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic young people aged 13 -18 within Belfast. Ultimately, this project will provide a platform for these young people’s voices on a range of issues, whilst exploring what they perceive to be the positive and negative aspects of living in Belfast. In capturing the views and perspectives of young people, it is anticipated that their voices will serve to shape and influence future efforts to improve their lives within the city.

    The survey will be available to complete from 12th – 30th April 2021.

    The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. No personal contact details are required and all responses are confidential. The findings from the survey will be used to inform a report which will outline the key issues, views and perspectives as identified by young respondents.

    We would like to thank you for your time. If you have any further questions regarding the survey please contact belfastyouthforum@belfastcity.gov.uk
