Young People's view of body image

One of the priorities set in 2014/15 was to investigate a subject that was important to young people in Sutton.

As we were not aware what young people's priorities might be, we carried out a prioritisation exercise with young people during the summer/autumn of 2015. They were asked to pick their top three priorities from a list and add any new issues if they felt that they weren't covered. The results showed that 'body image' was their biggest concern.

We investigated different ways that we might want to take this further and decided that a film giving young people's views about body image would be a good way of opening up the subject and giving local providers and commissioners of services an insight in to this area.
