Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (Local Offer)

Independent Consultation For Short Breaks And Social Care Personal Budgets

This is your opportunity to influence the Short Breaks and Personal Budgets offer and policies for Oldham.

As part of Oldham Council’s commitment to co-production of the Short Breaks and Social Care Personal Budgets offer, we have asked our partners Action Together and Oldham Healthwatch to carry out consultation with children, young people and families and local organisations in reviewing this local offer.    

You can make comments about the current offer and how it works for you, or does not work for you, plus take note of your requirements to inform decisions about future short breaks and personal budget provision for children and young people with SEND.

If you would like to be involved in the consultation please click on the appropriate link below and complete the survey or contact Laura Windsor-Welsh at Action Together on 0161 339 2345 or lauraww@actiontogether.org.uk

Please note that the response deadline is 21 April so act fast.
