As you will be aware, the Council recently consulted on its Early Help offer for children young people and families. The consultation closed on 22 November – you can remind yourself of what we were asking people in this short video.
We are currently considering all the feedback, which will be collated into a full report to Cabinet. It is expected that Cabinet will review this report early in the New Year.
The main objective of the consultation was to understand community views and opinions on specific proposals to change the way in which children, young people and family support services are delivered in Kirklees.
The consultation took place over an 8 week period using a range of consultation opportunities, including:
- Consultation booklet and questionnaire
- Focus group discussions with users of Children’s Centres and youth services
- Public information sessions
We will publish the outcomes of the consultation in our next partnership newsletter, in the New Year.
Thank you to those who took part in the consultation – your views are really important as we work together to shape early help services for the future.
