Feedback from young people

Young people with special educational needs and disabilities have given their feedback in different ways.  In groups they have spoken about their wishes and feelings. They have completed questionnaires.

They have told the local authority how they like to spend their time and about their goals. They have said how they like to be communicated and consulted with.

Sheffield City Council will work with young people to make sure that they put their recommendations in place.

You Said We Did

See what changes we have made based on the feedback we have received.

A parent (and Director of Strategy at Sheffield Parent Carer Forum) advised their daughter was wanting to start driving lessons but struggled to find information.  An advice page was researched and created called Learning to Drive.

Following on from feedback from employment forums we created a page on Disability Confident Employer.

We were told by young people that we didn't have any information on LGBTQ+ and sexuality.  We created an advice page that you can view here.

A parent advised they struggled to find a taxi company that would be able to take a motorised wheelchair.  We liaised with Transport Services and created an advice page on Accessible Taxis.

As part of looking at opportunities for young adults and increasing the options, we created a Starting Your own Business advice page.

We were told by parent/carers and young people that the subject areas on the Local Offer website needed another click to then view the information available.  We changed this based on this feedback.

Parents and carers said that a page with some useful links would be good to feature.  A page has been created with useful links.
