The Schools Health Education Unit [SHEU] is an independent research unit that has been working with young people and with education and health professionals since 1977.  We have developed expertise in providing reliable baseline data for local needs assessment to inform plans in health, education and care. We work with Public Health and Children’s Services across the UK. Millions of questions have been answered by youngsters. The resulting databanks provide a unique historical and contemporary archive of young people.

(Our) Senior team were very enthused with the rich source of data provided within the reports (and thought that the analyses including within the appendices section of the main reports were really interesting).

"...the most comprehensive health education survey."

Daily Telegraph

"The Health Related Behaviour Survey is an incredibly useful resource for (us) as it provides schools, with invaluable data which can inform curriculum content, methods of lesson delivery and empower schools to better meet the needs of their pupils."

Health Education Advisor

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."
