Essex Family Forum's Annual Family Impact Survey


We are conducting this survey to measure the current levels of parental satisfaction with local services for SEND Families and to gather data on issues raised by parents and carers.

In particular, Essex Family Forum will strive to ensure that findings from this survey inform the improvement work outlined in the Written Statement of Action that the local area was required to produce to address the areas of significant weakness that were identified by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission during the local area’s SEND Inspection in October 2019.
