Adult Strategy 2019 – 2022 Survey

In the second half of 2019, we (the Council and NHS Clinical Commissioning Group) created a new Adult Strategy.  In the Strategy, we set out a three-year vision for how health and care services would help adults live independent lives.  We also set out our priorities and an action plan, to make the vision a reality.

In the first half of 2020, the covid 19 pandemic began.  This meant that our plans for the Strategy did not develop in the way we expected.  The Strategy is now coming to the end of its three years.  We want to find out whether it has made any difference to the people we work with, and the people that we hoped would benefit from it (local patients and service users). 

You are invited to give your views on the Strategy, via a survey hosted by Sector Support North East Lincolnshire.  Responses will form part of a report on the progress we have made, and what we might do next. 

In the Strategy, we set out eight priorities.  You can answer questions about all of the priorities, or just answer questions about the ones that interest you most.  Depending on how many questions you answer, the survey could take between 5 and 20 minutes to complete. 

Please respond to the survey by 22nd July, using this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NDPG5KD

Speech, Language and Communication Services

Take the 4 question survey. Improve speech, language and communication services.- external site 

Why are we asking for your views

We know that some of the current services don’t fully meet the needs of our children and young people, so we want to hear from families about what is good and what needs to be better.

It’s important that no child is left out or left behind because of any difficulties with speaking, understanding or communicating. We’re hearing from lots of different people who support children such as family hubs, nurseries and pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, hospital teams and many more. Together we want to improve services for children so things are better both day to day and to help them reach their future goals.   

Who is leading the work to improve services

To help us understand how things are now and where we can make improvements, we’ve set up a Strategic Speech, Language and Communication Need Group where many organisations are coming together to discuss these services.

We’ve also set up a number of working groups looking at particular services, such as services for children that are looked after, early years services (0-5 years), school age children (5-18 years), children with a hearing and vision impairment and children supported by Youth Justice services. These groups will tell us what works well and what needs to change.

We want to have a shared vision amongst families and people supporting children about what a good service is like, so that any changes come from what people tell us.  

The Strategic Group meet every two months, so we’ll be updating you with the progress of this work after each meeting. If you’d like to learn more about this work please visit the page below
