On January 21, 2020 The Duchess of Cambridge launched 5 Big Questions, a landmark survey which gives people across the UK an opportunity to provide their view on raising the next generation.
In March 2018, The Duchess of Cambridge announced during a symposium at the Royal Society for Medicine that she had convened a steering group to look at what can be done to make a positive difference to the lives of children, by focusing on their earliest stage of life, from pre-birth to 5 years of age. The steering group’s recommendations, on behalf of The Duchess, formed the basis of The Royal Foundation’s strategy for developing her work in this area.
The fruit of this steering group is 5 Big Questions, a landmark survey which gives people across the UK an opportunity to provide their view on raising the next generation. The ‘5 Big Questions’ online poll is being conducted by Ipsos Mori on behalf of The Royal Foundation and “aims to spark the biggest ever conversation on early childhood”. The results of the survey will be made available in March and will determine the next steps in Catherine’s early years work.
To kick off the initiative The Duchess visited MiniBrum at Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum where she met with health professionals, parents, a group of children and supporters.
The Duchess will then continue promotion of her online poll by going on a 24 hour tour, making stops in London, Cardiff and Surrey.
