Working together with parents, children and young people

We would like your views on your experience of using our SEND information hub (local offer), and would be grateful if you could take a couple of minutes to complete the following survey.

We have pledged to work in partnership with parents/carers to improve, review and design services and engage with children and young people in decisions about them.

We have been doing this in a range of different ways over the past year – from one-to-one interviews, co-production sessions to shape aspects of SEND services, online feedback, through to countywide surveys to understand families’ experiences of accessing and using SEND services.

Parent and young people workshops

We will be running a number of workshops in July to find out how parents and young people are using our SEND information hub.

If you would like to take part, please complete our online form and a member of our local offer team will get back to you.

Working with young people

By working with young people, we have developed the Youth Charter as part of a commitment by us. It sets out six agreed principles of how young people want staff to engage and work with them.

Read the Youth Charter and download posters to display in your education setting.

The SEND co-production charter was created with the help of children and young people to allow for their voice to always be heard.

The main message focuses on everyone, no matter what their age is, coming together from the start to work collaboratively as equal partners, communicating and listening in a respectful manner to achieve the best possible outcome for everybody.

Working with partners

The Memorandum of Understanding is a statement of intent between Kent County Council, Kent PACT and NHS Kent and Medway CCG, to work collaboratively together for the SEND service.
