It goes without saying that 2020 has been hard on everyone. Covid-19 and lockdown have given us all some really big challenges and we’ve all been affected in some way.

We know that children have been at home, and whilst it’s been nice for some families to have that extra time together, the added pressures of home-schooling, working or not working and worrying about income has added to the stresses faced by parents since March.

With the current situation we know that those pressures on parents and families are not going away any time soon.

Beating the boredom during isolation and lockdown is difficult and thinking of activities to keep children occupied is no mean feat and that’s where we want to step in, but we need your help first.

We’d like parents throughout Doncaster to answer some really quick questions to give us an idea of what activities their family would like to take part in. We’ll use your suggestions to create some great new sessions for children and young people.

The survey should take you no longer than 5 minutes. So, grab yourself a cuppa (and maybe a biscuit because, let’s face it, you deserve it!), and let us know your views.


YMCA Doncaster won’t share any personal details collected in this survey. We will, however, use anonymised information gained to feed into our own reports and for future funding applications.
