About this survey

Independent Support is a national government initiative launched in January 2014 and designed to help parents and young people navigate through the Education, Health and Care (EHC) planning process.

An Independent Supporter is someone who has been appointed, supported and supervised by a local service provider or the Information, Advice and Support Service, both under contract with us. They would have completed accredited training provided by the Council for Disabled Children before offering impartial information and support to families and young people.

This survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the help you have received through an Independent Supporter. This feedback will be anonymous and will enable us to improve the service going forward.

The information collected is for internal research purposes only and when reporting survey findings, we will not identify any individuals. Results from this survey may be shared with Government in anonymized or aggregated forms.
