GPCPF parents survey  September  2021

A key role of Greenwich's Parent Carer Participation Forum is to work in partnership with commissioners and service providers to represent the views of parents and carers in order to influence services and get the best provision for children and young people aged 0-25 with SEND in Royal Greenwich.
 
Please help us do this by completing our survey by Friday  8th October 2021 Your responses will be fed back to the Local Authority and NHS South East London CCG (Greenwich) to enable them to make informed decisions that will deliver more efficient and effective services to you as a parent, carer or family member looking after a child or young person with SEND. We will also publish the findings of this survey on our website. https://greenwichpcpf.org/
 On behalf of GPCPF Advisory Group

If you like any help to complete this survey,please give me a call and I can arrange a time with support you.

From September 2014 every local authority was required to have a “local offer” which informs parent/carers and young people with SEND what is provided in their local area, including what to expect from local early years providers, schools, colleges, health and social care. In addition, it includes information on how decisions are made about how services are allocated, how to request a personal budget, how to access more specialist support and how to complain or appeal. https://www.royalgreenwich.gov.uk/info/200236/children_with_additional_needs/1671/about_the_local_offer
