Families First Survey

Calling all families!

Hertfordshire County Council have launched a short survey and are looking for families to help understand which services for children and young people they use and how they find their information.

The results of the survey will be used to help make sure that the right information and advice is available to support families, and that it’s easy for parents, grandparents and carers to find what they need.

In Hertfordshire there are a range of services, as well as information and advice available to support families including counselling services, local groups, clubs and activities, health services, SEND services and parenting courses. It’s important that everyone caring for a child or young person has access to these services and information to give every family a helping hand if and when needed.

If you are a parent, grandparent or carer please do take the time to complete the survey and help shape future services and information.

Survey closes 14 July. Thank you, we appreciate your help. www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/familiesfirstsurvey

Young Carer App

Research participants needed!

Are you a young carer living in Herts?

Are you aged 11 – 18?

Want to get involved in developing our app for Young Carers in Herts?

Jodie Deards, the Carers Lead at East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust (Lister Hospital) and Professor Natalie Pattison, who works at the hospital and the University of Hertfordshire, are working on a research project to develop the Young Carers in Herts App that was designed with members of the Young Carers Council.

The research project is now open and they are looking to recruit young carers. You will be asked to participate in an interview (approx. 45minutes) to hear your views on where you find health information and what do you think of the app. This interview can take place at a time and place that is convenient for you.

If you are interested or would like to find out more information, contact Jodie Deards:

Tel: 07554438517
