Their surveys are still open!
Join over 200 professionals in sharing your views and helping them develop their support package by taking their short survey.
The survey will be kept open to enable you to tell them if your views or experiences change over the next few weeks and months.
Like their professionals survey, their parents and carers survey is also staying open. Where you can, please share their survey to give parents and carers the chance to let them know about the challenges you face and how they can support you.

If you’re using this time to develop, or refresh, your understanding of online safeguarding, why not take their Keeping Children Safe Online e-learning course, developed in partnership with the NSPCC.
