Surveys & Consultations

It may not always be possible for you to attend an event or to give your views in person, but you can have your say by taking part in our on-line surveys or local consultations which you will find linked below.

Current Open Surveys

Back To School Poll from the Disabled Children’s Partnership
What’s the return to school or college been like? Take 5 minutes to complete the Disabled Children’s Partnership poll.
The Disabled Children’s Partnership is a major coalition of more than 70 charities, campaigning to improve health and social care for children with disabilities and additional needs.

In May, we asked parent carers what life in lockdown was like. And you told us in your thousands about the very difficult situation many of you were in. We used what you told us to raise the profile of disabled children with Ministers and the wider public.

But have things improved since then? And what has the return to school or college been like for disabled children and young people?

Healthwatch Swindon are currently running a survey that you may wish to participate in:

Past Survey Results

June 2020 Results of the Covid-19 Impact Survey

We had 240 responses to our survey. The results have been shared with the Head of SEND and the Director of Children’s Services at Swindon Borough Council. We are working together with them to discuss where issues have occurred and how to help with your concerns for the future, including respite care, support with home schooling and schools reopening in September. We will be updating you on any actions that are taken as a result of this survey and we thank all you who participated.
