Creating a better future for you

Last Updated on Monday, 19 June 2017 11:43 Written by Web team Monday, 05 June 2017 13:23

Are you a child, young person or parent in Lambeth? If yes, we want to hear from you.

We’re launching a new Children and Young People's Plan this summer, setting out the future we want for children and young people in the borough and how services will work together to make this a reality.

We’ve been listening to children, young people and families since the start of May to find out what they think the aims and ambitions for the plan should be, visiting:

  • primary and secondary schools
  • colleges
  • children's centres
  • the children in Care Council
  • parents forums
  • voluntary sector organisations and more.

Now it’s your turn!

We want to hear from anyone interested in creating a better future for children and young people in Lambeth. If you're a child, young person, or parent, this is your opportunity to tell us what is most important to you by taking part in our short survey. The survey will be open until Wednesday 14 June, so make sure to have your say!

If you’d like to help us choose the 'vision' for the plan - a short statement of what the Plan should achieve, in a few words – and tell us what it means for you to be healthy, safe, resilient and achieving, then please do get involved. We also want to know what you think the final Plan should look like.

Let’s make sure services take the right steps to support children and young people – to create a better future for you.

Share your views by taking our online survey – closes Friday 30 June!
