Surveys and Consultations

On this page you will find details of SEND related surveys and consultations (most recent first).  These come from a variety of sources.

  • HPCI runs its own surveys for parents and carers on various topics to help HPCI be as representative as possible.
  • HPCI helps design and host surveys with Hertfordshire County Council about services they run or commission (pay for).
  • HCC (Hertfordshire County Council) run their own surveys and consultations which we publicise to parents and carers so that HCC gets as wide a range of views as possible. Often HPCI has helped design the survey/consultation questions but not always.
  • National surveys – these could be from national organisations or government departments.

Where possible we also publish the survey or consultation results and keep our parent network informed about any further developments.


Moving and handling survey for parents of children and young people with significant physical needs closes 1st Nov 2020

HPCI is working on a project with Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) to offer free moving and handling training sessions for parent carers of children and young people 0 – 18 Years.
The training is for those whose children have significant physical needs and who use specialist equipment in their home at the moment OR may need to in the future.  The aim of the sessions is to help parent carers move and handle their children safely and effectively. The training also aims to help prevent long term damage to the physical health of parent carers. The sessions would be run face to face in small groups.
We’ve put together a survey, so we can make sure that this training meets the needs of the parents and carers who will attend.  The survey should only take a couple of minutes to complete and we’d really appreciate you taking the time to help us shape this training.  The survey will be open until 1 November (but there’s no time like the present!):

Complex Health Needs Survey – closes 16th October 2020

Are you a Hertfordshire parent of a child aged 0 to 11 years who has complex health needs?  If so then we would like your help with a project HPCI is supporting the health provider HCT with.  We are looking at what support families have or had during the preschool years with managing their child’s health care appointments and health needs.

Please complete this short questionnaire so we can shape the proposed support to make sure it works for preschool families.

PREVIOUS SURVEYS BELOW ARE NOW CLOSED

HPCI Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) Survey

We are conducting a survey for any parent or carer of children aged 3 to 25 who have Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD). This includes dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD/ADD (attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder), dyscalculia or dysgraphia, either identified or suspected.

The survey is to help gather evidence that builds a picture of the current experience of families with SpLD in Hertfordshire.  Should you have more than one child with SpLD then please complete a separate survey for each child.

You can fill out the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SpLD2020

Feel free to pass the link on to other parents and carers of children with SpLD who may be interested – they do not need to be a member of HPCI.  Closing date for survey is 23rd February.
