Future Focus - Developing a vision for Surrey in 2030: SEND as key transformation theme
Surrey County Council created and approved at full Council on 22 May a draft - ‘Developing a Vision for Surrey in 2030’. The vision is built around shaping places and serving communities, with partnership working between county council, local councils, clinical commissioning groups and voluntary sector organisations to meet the needs identified by local people, at a local level.
Seven transformation themes are identified:
Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
Early Help, Prevention and Demand Management
Social Care Practice; Fostering and Adoption
All Age Disabilities
All Age Learning
Extra Care and Supported Living
Family Voice Surrey supports the transformation themes and the drive to integrate services and capabilities to best meet locally identified needs.
The vision is being developed through workshops being held across Surrey: FVS team members attended the event held in Reigate and found strong support for the SEND community among those attending.
You can have your say on the vision and what the priorities in Surrey should be by watching the short animation on Surrey Says at: https://www.surreysays.co.uk/deputy-ceo/2030vision/ and completing the on-line survey; the closing date is 3 September.
Towards the end of September, the vision will be expanded and finalised based on the feedback and used to develop a 5+ year action plan and budget, all for Council approval on 13 November.
