We are working in partnership to hear your Adopter Voice

Hello from Adopt London East,

We are keen to work with you to develop and improve our services and can only do this if we develop a strong partnership. We have commissioned Adoption UK to help us to provide independent support to our adopters who wish to work more closely with us to develop our adopter voice.

Would you please take a few minutes of your time to complete the online survey attached. This survey will be analysed by Adoption UK and fed back to us. We will seek to use these to improve our services

Sue May

Head of Service,

 

Adoption UK are delivering Adopter Voice across the formed Regional Adoption Agency now known as Adopt London East.  Adopter Voice is a fully developed service and will be working in partnership to ensure engagement and consultation opportunities are available to all stakeholders. 
 
At Adoption UK everything we do is around peer to peer support and connecting communities to facilitate this.  Adopter Voice gathers views from stakeholders to share and influence service delivery with your lived experience at the heart of it.

Over the next few months we will be asking you to get involved in various ways, such as answering questions on surveys,  participating in webinars while we can’t host face to face ones, becoming a Adopter Voice Champion and helping us create an Adopter Advisory Board.  We also have an established facebook group for this https://www.facebook.com/groups/2307808502800235/
Adopter Voice Adopt London East, so you can join and connect with others around the topics and other interesting news and views.

Please answer as fully as you can so we can understand your views on all areas that affect us as adopters, from the earliest days to present day and some of your wishes for the future.

This survey will be open until Wednesday 13 May 2020 at 12 noon.

We are really looking forward to hearing your views

Kind regards
Anita Hart
(Contracts ManagerAdoption UK)
