‘Parent Voices’ Your voice matters…

Dear parents…

Do you want to have a say in healthcare services that are provided for you by the borough? We are collating your stories to get your voices heard. ‘Parent Voices’ will be a new report that is given directly to those who fund your healthcare services.
If you would like to tell us your story about raising a child with a disability within City and Hackney please get in contact with anjie@huddlestoncentre.org.uk

The story starts from diagnosis…all the way through to the current day. What was/is your experience? If you have had a good service we want to know, if a terrible experience we want to hear that too! All stories will remain anonymous.

Caring for a disabled child or young person can be challenging. Even the most experienced parents and carers will sometimes need someone to hear about the difficulties that they are facing on a day to day basis. By working together with families, children and young people in this way, issues can be prevented from escalating as services are adapted to the needs of the families,

Families dictate the level of contact that suits them. It’s all about what works for the individual family. Our reports and recommendations to the Clinical Commissioning Board can then offer long-term opportunities for parents to feed back. Parent Participation and Parent Carer Forums leads to better outcomes for disabled young people and their families.
