Change that leads to better lives

Children and young people advise DfE and CQC on writing surveys

Voices image2

Young people supported by our Time to Talk Next Steps programme responded to the Department for Education (DfE) and Care Quality Commission (CQC) consultation to inform Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) inspections.

A number of young people from the peer support group, and parents and carers from the project steering group, contributed to the response for ‘making surveys for children and young people accessible’. The consultation is now closed, but you can read what our group of young people had to say here.

We’re continuously learning from the young people we work with and the Time to Talk Next Steps programme is coproduced with them. We now plan to use their feedback to make our own surveys for children and young people more accessible.

Through Time to Talk Next Steps we provide direct support for young people aged 16-25 with additional support needs to build confidence, provide motivation and make plans for their future. Young people have developed peer support and some have also co-designed and delivered training for professionals.
