Covid-19 survey report 2020

During the Covid-19 crisis and lockdown, the opportunities to connect with parent carers, and our partners has been understandably limited to phone calls, Facebook or emails. Through this, we recognised that SEND families were facing added stress and pressure on top of their everyday caring; the forum decided to run a survey to try and capture some of the issues and experiences of Parent Carers of CYP with SEND in Sunderland.

The survey ran on SurveyMonkey for 7 days (03/05/20 to 10/05/20); we received responses from 90 parent carers, which is only a small percentage of parent carers in Sunderland. This seems to be an average number of respondents when compared with our fellow parent carer forums nationally.  Some families don’t have online access or access to an internet capable device, while others may be too stressed/stretched to be able to complete the survey at this time, and others just won’t want to engage in this way.

Our final reports are listed below, if you have any questions about the survey, please email
