Annual Family Impact Survey

Essex Family Forum’s Management Committee would like to thank, once more, all the families who took the time to complete our Annual Family Impact Survey at the end of last year.  As your Parent Carer Forum we are the official and most effective route to providing feedback on SEND Services in Essex to drive ongoing improvement and one of our core beliefs is that our voices are much stronger together.  The influence of this collective approach is reflected in the detailed response provided by the SEND Improvement Board to the challenging feedback from families in our survey.   Please click on the button:  

One important outcome of the feedback from our survey is that Essex Council have commissioned an independent review of the SEND Tribunal process in Essex.

There is already a significant amount of improvement work underway, in which Essex Family Forum is already participating, and there is commitment from the service leaders in Essex to further co-productive working with us, the wider SEND family community including children and young people themselves.

We want to ensure that as many parents/carers as possible have the opportunity to influence the planning, development and delivery of SEND services in Essex – please keep in touch, if you’re already a member, or join us to have your say!
