Family help survey - we would like to hear your views

If you're a parent or carer and you or someone in your family needs support - where do you go for help?

Published 12 January 2023

If you're a parent or carer and you or someone in your family needs support - where do you go for help?

Maybe you or your partner is pregnant and are getting ready for the big day while wanting to have some information on what you need to do to prepare - how do you find it?

What about support for young people who need help and advice?

How do you prefer to find out information, or get in touch with someone who can help? What's the best way to come together with other people in similar situations?

All these questions and more are part of a new survey Wiltshire Council is launching to find out how parents, carers, and parents-to-be and their children want to access services in 2023.

The short survey (opens new window) is available until 2 April 2023.

The results will provide the council with an understanding of residents' preferences and will help inform future delivery of services.

Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Children's Services said: "Parents and carers have many shared experiences and know what works best for them. But it's fair to say someone who has teenage children now will remember a very different way of life just a few years ago with small children, to those who have small children now. In the same way, children and young people are growing up in a rapidly changing world.

"We want to make sure our future service provision is right and works in the best way for everyone. This survey is one way we will be asking people to share their views. It's a very quick survey so we'd like as many people as possible to participate."

The survey will inform the wider review of Family Help across the county for children aged 0-19 and up to 25 years for young adults with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities.
