Consultation on Short Breaks Activities for SEND Families - Have Your Say

Updated: Jun 15


UPDATE FROM B&NES COUNCIL 15/05/22: We have just noticed that our provider surveys were not showing the full range of questions contained in the survey itself. Please can I ask you to visit the link again to complete the survey. Your opinion is really important to us and we want to ensure we have captured everyone’s viewpoint as part of this consultation so that we can ensure the right provisions are put in place for disabled children and young people and their families of B&NES to access. The survey should consist of at least 10 questions.


Bath and North East Somerset Council are reviewing the short breaks activities it currently delivers for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND).
