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.
