In 2009 and 2013, DPCC worked with the old Dorset County Council to gather the views of parent and carers to help design and plan the future of short breaks across Dorset.
We are pleased to say that we are doing this again with the new Dorset Council and need as many parent carers to complete the 2019 survey as possible.
Dorset Council commissions a variety of short break services, which allow children and young people to have fun outside the home and give parents and carers some much-needed time to themselves.
We need to know what short breaks parents, carers, children and young people would like to see in the future, to say what’s currently working and what needs to be better.
Your answers will make sure Dorset Council uses the limited resources and funding available to provide a range of short breaks that we (parents, carers, children and young people) want – not what others think we want.
This survey works best on tablet or PC, due to the range of questions we need to ask.
Please do take part and let’s make sure our voices and our choices are heard!
PLUS – if you are eligible for short breaks, you could be in with a chance to win one of 10 Love2Shop vouchers for £25 usable at over 20,000 outlets. Simply fill in your details at the end of the survey to be entered into the prize draw. Find out if you’re eligible
The results from the survey will be published on Dorset Council’s and our website shortly after the survey closing date (26 July).
