Body Kind Youth Survey 2023

How do you feel about your body?  And how do you think other young people feel about theirs?   

If you live in Australia and are aged between 12 and 18 years, we’d like to know.

Butterfly invites you to take this year’s online Body Kind Youth Survey and share your body image experiences and ideas to help make Australia more Body Kind. All information provided is confidential and anonymous. 

You could also win one of 20 gift vouchers!


A few key things! 

When you enter the survey you will be asked your age and will need to watch an important, short video. This explains everything you need to know about the survey and what you are being asked to do.  If you are aged between 12 and 14 you will need to watch this video with a parent or guardian so they can agree to your taking part, so it might be a good idea to grab them in advance!

Don’t worry, your parents won’t see your survey responses or be given any information about them.

Taking part is entirely up to you but we’d love to hear from young people from across Australia – all genders, identities, backgrounds and abilities! Your ideas will help Butterfly’s work around body image and young people.
