Have Your Say
We are always keen to hear from residents in East Sussex that want to provide their insight on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) services and provision.
This page highlights ways that you can contribute. It will be updated throughout the year.
To see how we have already used service user insight to improve services, visit our ‘You Said, We Did’ page.
SEND Survey for Children and Young People
We want to hear from children and young people in East Sussex.
We have created a short survey to help us understand where children and young people find information about SEND, and what is most important to them.
Insight from children and young people is important in helping us to shape our Local Offer. Please share this survey with children and young people so they can share their thoughts:
The survey should only take 3 to 5 minutes to complete.
Please note, this survey will close on 29 March 2024.
Become a Young SEND Ambassador
The Young SEND Ambassadors are a youth group. They represent and advocate for young people with SEND. They meet a couple of times a month to discuss their thoughts and views. This helps to create change and ensures that the youth voice is at the heart of Education East Sussex services.
To find out more about the Young SEND Ambassadors, and other SEND youth groups visit our page on Youth Groups and Activities.
