Help us to promote our website survey
In addition to the face to face engagement, we have a survey running to help us gather information about what different audiences would like to see on our website. We want to ensure we get feedback from the highest number of children, young people, their families and carers and professionals as we can. On your own social media platforms, you can help us by sharing the survey link below and encouraging your followers to have their say, so we can build a website that works for everyone, from CYP to professionals. https://www.elesurvey.co.uk/f/615158/1b61/
Website co-production opportunities
In the New Year, the communications and engagement team will be visiting several groups as we look to co-produce the webpage content with children, young people, their families and carers and professionals. We have several visits planned to groups such as LGBT at Blackburn Youth Zone, and Headstart and Entwined Minds in Blackpool. As always, we’d like to gain insight from yourselves so if you know of any groups you feel would be good for us to co-produce with, please let us know! You can contact us by emailing email@example.com or calling 01772 214061.
Care of the Most Vulnerable
The Care of the Most Vulnerable workstream is based on key priority areas set out in Future in Mind and aims to improve outcomes for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) or learning difficulties.
From his experiences of working as a nurse and suffering from depression himself, Sam Tyrer decided he wanted to do something to raise awareness to tackle mental health issues facing people in Lancashire. He organised a series of ‘Change Talks’ in 2017 and has never ‘Change Talks’ in 2017 and has never looked back. “I left nursing at the start of January with the support of Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust and they are helping me develop Change Talks by collaborating with their services including the Children and Young People’s Transformation Programme.
