Better together - share your views

We want to hear about your lockdown experiences

We are always looking at ways that we can learn from the experiences of children, young people with SEND and their families or carers so that we can improve our services to make them right for you.

We have created these surveys so you can tell us about your experience during lockdown, just follow the links - we would love to hear from you!

Measuring our impact, Can you help?

The London Borough of Bromley and NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group – Bromley (SELCCG) are committed to improving the education, health and wellbeing outcomes for children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

We want to support all children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) or disabilities to achieve the best outcomes in employment, independent living, health and community participation.  We call these the Bromley Life pathways.

Working with children and young people with SEND and their families we have developed a range of indicators that will be used to measure progress.  These SEND Indicators will help us to measure how well we are doing and the difference that we are making for children and young people with SEND and their families.

We have also developed some outcome statements which tell us what children and young people want to achieve. For example, I am able to learn or I am healthy.  These outcome statements are written from the child or young person’s point of view.

Can you help?

We are now looking to test our work with a wider group of families.  We are looking for families who would be willing to get involved.  Volunteers would be required to meet virtually or speak with Kay Moore, from our SEN And disability service over the summer. 

You will be asked to complete an online survey.  You will given the guidance which has been devised to give parents/carers helpful suggestions of what to consider within each of the sections on the measuring impact survey.

Volunteers will then be asked to attend a further meeting/telephone call to share their feedback.  It is expected to take no more than 3 hours between July and September 2020.

For further information call Kay Moore on 07866 002239.


Shaping Autism in Bromley

The Bromley All-Age Autism Board (BAAB) Action Plan consists of 7 priorities. Before the 100 day challenge began, a survey was sent out across the local area to gather the views and feelings of how services are working and needs are being met in Bromley. This survey had over 300 responses and informed the first six priorities in the BAAB action plan.

These were reaffirmed by a second survey in April 2020, where 65 individuals completed the survey by ranking the identified priorities by importance and described how they felt services and offers could be improved in Bromley.

SEND engagement

We want to put the voice of our children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their families at the heart of what we do. Ensuring that they are engaged actively in planning and evaluating the services they need is everyone’s business.

We have developed our SEND engagement framework to improve how we ask for, collect and use feedback from our children and young people and their parents or carers.

The document sets out our framework, 'Inform. Involve. Influence.', to describe ways of working which engage children, young people and their parents and carers in discussions and decisions relating to them, shaping the services they need.
