Council aim to make borough “child friendly”
Cllr Alan Atkin

A SURVEY for young people has been launched as council bosses aim to make the borough “child friendly.”

A wishlist of aims will be created using the answers given to the project, inspired by a Unicef campaign.

Cllr Alan Atkin, lead member for Child Friendly Rotherham, said: “Without sounding like a cliché, it is the next generation which will ensure this town is a future success.

“That is why they need to feel like they have had a say in how it looks but also in what kind of future they see for themselves and their families.”

The survey asks young people what is most important for them to have a safe and happy upbringing. Youngsters can take part here>>.
