In North East Lincolnshire we are committed to improving access to Occupational Therapy Service for children and young people.   To help us do this we are keen to hear the view of families, children and young people using the service. What is your experience?  What is working well?  What can be improved?

Occupational therapy aims to support children and young people to meet their daily physical, sensory, learning and self-care needs.  Their aim is to help improve ability to live as independently as possible so that the young person can participate in the activities that are important to them. Occupational Therapists do this by identifying challenges in their everyday lives. We want to ensure the right support and services are in place to help understand, manage, reduce or resolve symptoms where possible. 

We realise the Coronavirus restrictions have changed the way children and young people access services.  We are keen to understand your experience from before, during and after the coronavirus pandemic.  We know that listening to the views and experiences of children and their families helps us to do this and therefore, we would love to hear from you.

Sharing your views can be done in a number of ways:

  • completing a survey online by following this link
  • requesting a paper copy that you can return by freepost
  • over the phone by ringing 0300 3000 567 (calls are charged at a local rate).   A convenient time will be arranged for Donna Redhead,  Service Manager, to call you back.
  • you can also become a member of a service user Focus Group

The survey has 21 questions and should take about 15 minutes to complete.  Responses are anonymous and the closing date is Wednesday, 21 April 2021.  

In North East Lincolnshire we are committed to improving access to good quality Speech and Language Services for children and young people.   To help us do this we are keen to hear the view of families, children and young people using the service.

Currently, support is available from various teams dependent on individual age and need such as; Family Hub staff, School staff and Hospital Therapists.  We also realise that the Coronavirus restrictions have changed the way support is received.  We are keen to understand your experience from before, during and after the coronavirus pandemic. 

Many organisations are involved in speech and language services in North East Lincolnshire and they have agreed to come together to discuss and agree a shared vision to improve what children and young people speech and language services should look like.  An important element of this is understanding the views of those using the service.

The way we engage with you on major highways projects has changed. Many of our intentions for future projects are published in our Highways Strategy (PDF) or Infrastructure Delivery Plan (PDF) . The projects published in these documents are intended to go ahead at some point in the future but will be subject to us securing grant funding for any upgrades.

We are taking comments and suggestions for projects that have not yet made it to the drawing board to give you the earliest opportunity to have your say. It is possible that your comments may not be used if a project never goes ahead or the opportunity to bid does not arise.

Any project that has grant funding approved will also go through a formal consultation process on the draft design. The process for these schemes is short, straightforward to follow and available here: Major Projects Engagement Process (PDF)

It also details how elected members are involved in the process.

You can submit your pre-bid comments on our highways major projects survey .

The Council is considering a landlord and tenant friendly Selective Licensing Scheme within parts of the East and West Marsh areas.

It is intended to tackle the issues of crime, anti-social behaviour and poor housing conditions. We are consulting with residents of the area, landlords and members of the public so this is an opportunity for you to influence how the scheme will be developed and carried out. Your views will be considered and will help to shape the decisions made about the scheme.

We would like to know about the issues you have experienced in these areas, what you think of the proposal as well as the areas suggested for Selective Licensing.

Changes made to the business case

We have made some minor amendments to the selective licensing business case and have extended the consultation. If you have already submitted a response you can make new representations based on these amendments to consultation@nelincs.gov.uk.

You can find details of these changes within the business case.

North East Lincolnshire Council is once again consulting residents on the local provision of services for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

This is the second annual consultation since the 2018 SEND local area inspection and gives residents the opportunity to share their experiences of local SEND services and offer ideas on how to improve what is already on offer.

The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and covers key areas such as education, health, and care.

Councillor Ian Lindley, portfolio holder for children, education and young people at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “Our services are used by a lot of local people, all with different levels of need, and it’s vitally important that we shape our services around our users and constantly challenge ourselves to improve. 

“Over the last year our local families will have had some very new and different experiences, and we want to capture a flavour of how these experiences have impacted how they use our services.

“This survey is open to children and young people and their parents and carers, and I would urge you to get involved if you have an experience of our SEND services.

“This is a valuable opportunity for you to really shape our services.”

The new SEND Local Offer website went live in December and is being launched on 25 January. This is a new, centralised hub of information for children and young people, parents and carers, and professionals.

To take part in the survey visit the ‘Have your say’  section and select the survey that applies to you as either a child/young person, or parent/carer.

If you need to speak to someone to give your views, ask any questions or need a paper copy of the survey please ring the SEND team on 01472 323166 or send an email to sen@nelincs.gov.uk.

The survey closes on 8 March 2021.

North East Lincolnshire is home to thousands of current and ex-serving men and women and their families from across the armed forces.
  
As part of our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant and together with other key public and private sector organisations, we are constantly seeking ways to strengthen those existing partnerships and help the local armed forces community. 

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly, and will not be disadvantaged in accessing public services due to their military service.
 
While good procedures and initiatives have been put in place by service providers, locally and nationally, we wish to be reassured that no member of the Armed Forces Community is suffering any disadvantage in accessing public services.

North East Lincolnshire Council is seeking to increase awareness of the Covenant in key areas, while retaining, and improving, the ability of local service providers to honour the Covenant in the best way to suit local needs.
