Annual Parent Carer Satisfaction Survey 2018
It’s that time of year again when we ask families across Suffolk to make their voices heard about education, health and care services. The findings from our annual survey form the basis of our evidence throughout the coming year, so it is really important that you complete our survey if you have a child or young person aged 0-25 with any additional need or disability who either lives in Suffolk or receives services in the county. Last year 415 families responded but there are over 12,000 children and young people in Suffolk with special educational needs and disabilities and we are much stronger the more voices we have. Please share with everyone you know and encourage them to take the time to fill out this survey – one per child/young person. If you have any queries please contact us on email@example.com or phone 07341 126455
Family Carers Survey
We want to hear about your experiences of support for family carers in Suffolk. The information you give us will be used to assess what is currently working well for family carers and to identify any gaps in services for family carers. We want to know what works well, what could be improved and what's missing. All answers will be used anonymously so please do answer openly and honestly. If you want to withdraw any information you have given, please contact Helen Robinson on 01473 260354 (9am – 4pm Monday to Friday) or by email firstname.lastname@example.org putting the word ‘survey’ in the title. This survey should take around 20 minutes to complete. The survey closes on Thursday 22 November 2018. Thank you.
