Reminder: Have your say! iOutcomes Framework Survey

We would like to know your thoughts on the iOutcomes framework. This framework was created to measure how well every child or young person, including those with SEND, reaches their goals, and it was co-produced with children, young people and families.

The proposed seven outcomes for children and young people are:

  • I am confident and able to achieve my goals
  • My voice is heard and acted upon
  • I enjoy good health and wellbeing
  • I feel safe
  • I feel part of my local community
  • I am happy and have people I can trust
  • The people who love me and care for me are enabled to do this

Please have your say by filling in this short survey. It will only take 4-5 minutes.

We want to know whether you think these are the right outcomes. We will use your views and opinions to confirm the outcomes and then to help improve the way local services are developed. The survey will help identify any trends or areas for further improvement in partnership with children, young people and families.

The deadline for completing the survey is Friday the 28th February. Please do complete the survey, send the link to as many people as you can and spread it onwards within your networks!
