Parents and carers needed to help plan summer activities for children with special needs

PARENTS and carers are being asked to complete a short survey about a service for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities across Lancashire.

The questionnaire will give them the chance to share their views on summer activities provided through the Lancashire Break Time Service.

Participants have until Friday, July 17 to complete the online form. This survey will help Lancashire County Council chiefs to plan summer activities while making sure that social distancing measures are in place to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The measures will include each group session having a maximum of six children at any one time and the sessions being shorter than usual.

County Councillor Phillippa Williamson, cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “It is vital we continue to offer our Lancashire Break Time summer service, which provides fun activities for children with special educational needs and disabilities, despite the coronavirus.

“These activities allow parents and carers the important opportunity to take a short break from their caring role.

“This year due to coronavirus, the way the activities are offered and delivered will be changed to meet Government guidance.

“This short survey will allow us to plan our summer activities effectively to ensure everyone who wants to use them can access them easily and safely.

“It will also help us to ensure social distancing measures are in place to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our community.”
