Together for Children are currently participating in a Department for Education (DfE) ‘Delivering Better Value in SEND’ programme (DBV in SEND). This programme aims to support local authorities and their local partners to improve the delivery of SEND services for children and young people whilst working towards financial sustainability.

As part of this process, we recognise that collaboration with families, young people and key partners will be key to achieving improved outcomes for children and young people across the city.

We invite you to complete this survey Delivering Better Value – SEND, Parent and Carers Survey to help us understand your views and experiences about your child or young person’s current educational setting.

The information that you provide will not be used in decision making for individual children and young people but will be invaluable to help us improve outcomes as part of Delivering Better Value for SEND in Sunderland.

We thank you in advance, for your engagement with this process and we look forward to receiving your responses.

The survey closes on Monday 9th Oct at 11.59pm
