Best Practice

Online Survey for parents in RBKC and WCC

Help us improve services for parents of children aged 0-5

RBKC and WCC are embarking on an ambitious project to review and improve services available to support parents from pre-birth up until their child turns 5 years old. To do this, we need your help. We want to know what your experience has been of the services and what support you have accessed. What did you find helpful? What do you think could have been better? Please share your views by completing our survey. It will take just 10 minutes of your time but will provide us with invaluable insight into your experience so that we can make the changes that really matter to local families.

You can access the online survey by clicking on this link.

We would be grateful if you could share this information with your families as soon as possible.
