Welcome to our consultation section.

From here you can look at our current live surveys that ask you for your feedback on a particular subject or area of consultation. Unfortunately, due to the very tight timescales for implementation, some of these surveys will only be open for a very short period. This is so that the information being collected can be used to inform & influence work currently being undertaken.

Information or feedback that you supply will all help to go towards helping shape local & national documents/policies. Any reports or feedback from closed surveys and events will be added to our dedicated "Past Events" webpage

If you have had an experience (good or bad) that you would like to share with other parent/carers, please let us know more, by using our 'Share your experiences' webpage or emailing us at

The power is in your hands to help make a difference!
