CYPSP Parental Participation Survey


The CYPSP would like to hear from parents / carers to help shape the design and development of support services for families across Northern Ireland. They want to ensure parents and families receive the support they need when they need it with an aim to improve the health and wellbeing for them and their children. This support could include advice, information, home visiting, programmes, individual support, group support, etc. This survey is anonymous and an honest assessment would be most helpful.
