U-Report in the UK
Young people speak out
on issues that matter to them
Last year we launched U-Report in the UK, part of a global online and mobile platform for young people to speak out on what matters to them. The answers and opinions they provide are being used by decision-makers to bring about change.
How does U-Report work?
Once you sign up, you’ll receive weekly poll questions on a range of issues, which they can respond to on your phone or computer. When you respond, your answers will appear instantly on U-Report’s UK website, which collates and showcases the views of young people across the country. It means you can see your answers in real time, and see how your friends are responding.
U-Report is free, anonymous and easy to use.
Through U-Report, you will be able to add your voice to campaigns on things like protecting unaccompanied refugee children in the UK to how you feel about online safety. As we continue to grow, you will also be able to hold decision-makers to account and have your say on policies that affect you by giving local authorities feedback on services or their policies. There’ll even be opportunities for U-Reporters to come together and set the weekly poll question, allowing you to gather information to support your own campaigning on issues you care about.
I really enjoyed being involved in U-report - getting to spread positivity around the UK and exploring other young people's feedback towards it.
I think that its really important young people have a voice. Because young people are the future generation of tomorrow and as technology advances so do the minds of the new.

How has U-Report helped young people around the world?
U-Report can, and has, made change for young people around the world. U-Reporters in Liberia were asked a question from Unicef, The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Gender on the topic of sexual abuse in schools in return for grades.
IS SEX FOR GRADES A PROBLEM IN SCHOOLS?
8 out of 10 young people in Liberia say sex for grades is a problem, based on 13,000 responses within 24 hours to a U-report question on the issue.
