Parents or carers of children under five years old

If you're a parent or carer of a child under five years old, you can take part in our Bristol Under Fives Survey and enter our prize draw.

We'd like to find out more about families with children under five years old, to help us plan local services.  You can take part online or pick up a paper copy at your local Children’s Centre

If you'd like the survey in an alternative format such as large print, or need assistance filling the survey in, ring us on 0117 3773219.
