Calling parents, carers and young people!
If you are interested in improving special educational needs and disability services in Wolverhampton, here is your chance to do so!

Please share this with your contacts and encourage as many people as possible to complete it.

Wolverhampton City Council is currently in the process of developing a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) on Children and Young People with SEND.  An important part of the JSNA process is to understand what services are currently being provided, to identify any gaps in service provision, and also to highlight any other needs which are currently unmet.  To help them build a picture of the experiences Parents/Carers and Young People with SEND have of current services, they have created this survey. The recommendations will be used by the JSNA Steering Group to consider where improvements are needed.
As a Parent/Carer or Young Person who is a stakeholder of SEND services for children and young people aged 0 – 25 years in Wolverhampton, they would like to invite you to complete this survey. It is estimated it will take 10 minutes to complete.  All responses to this survey will be analysed collectively, and will be used to develop the JSNA report.  Complete the survey here

**Please note that the deadline for this survey is Friday 21st October 2016**
