Short Breaks outcomes survey 2022

Closed 18 Apr 2022

Opened 25 Mar 2022


Short Breaks are play, leisure and respite activities run by our partner organisations, which give children and young people with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy time with friends, have fun and develop new skills.  They also give families the chance to have a break from their caring responsibilities.

Following on from our previous surveys, we are now looking to hear from parents and carers about why Short Breaks are important to them and their children, to inform the design of new Short Breaks services commencing in April 2023.  Short Breaks are a key part of our offer to children and young people with disabilities and their families, and we are committed to continuing to provide a good range of Short Breaks services across Surrey to meet a wide range of needs. 

This work seeks to update the consultation that took place with parents and carers in 2017, which informed the development of the current outcomes framework, to ensure the aims of the Short Breaks service are still relevant and making a difference to families’ lives.

This survey is 19 questions long and will take around 15 minutes to complete.

Please note that as we are consulting parents/carers of children and young people who have accessed Short Breaks, you do not need to complete the survey if your child(ren) has/have not attended any of the types of schemes listed in question 1.

If you are a parent/carer to more than one child who has attended Short Breaks, please complete the survey based on the child who has attended Short Breaks for the longest.

All information given will be confidential – we will not ask for your name or your child’s name.  Answering this survey will not affect your access to Short Breaks or any other council services or support.
