Mental health and wellbeing survey launched.

The mental health and wellbeing of both our parent carer forum members and their children and young people with SEND is a priority for us, the NNPCF.

We are acutely aware of the impact that the COVID pandemic has had on everyone, especially parent carers.

We have created a survey to help inform our future work and to advise our response to the call for evidence to develop a new cross-government, 10-year plan for mental health and wellbeing for England.

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XJDWLW3

The survey is two parts and will take around 15 minutes to complete.

The survey is open until 23 June 2022.

NNPCF launch SEND Green Paper consultation survey for all parent carers.

The NNPCF have recently launched their parent carer survey on the SEND and Alternative Provision Green Paper consultation.

They hope to collect as many responses as possible from all parent carers, not just those who are involved in their local parent carer forums.

The responses of the survey will help to inform the NNPCF’s own response to the SEND Green Paper consultation.

Co-chairs Tina Emery and Mrunal Sisodia stated that, “The Green Paper is an opportunity to reset the SEND system after the 2014 reforms failed to deliver the improvements that families of children with SEND so desperately need. It is vital that every parent carer’s voice is heard and so we have launched a short, simple survey to gather parental views that we will use to inform our response to the Green Paper. We will, of course, also publish the survey results.”

You can complete the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/J63QX22

The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete and remains open until the 30 June.
