The redevelopment of the Hull Local Offer, and how you can get involved.
Vicki Pellat of the Hull local offer is really keen to change the local offer for the better and believes parent feedback is important to making that happen, so let’s give her our feedback. Please post expressions of interest below!
Local Offer update November 2021
After the listening events in early 2021 and feedback from parents, carers and young people we identified that improvements were required to the Local Offer website to address the problems highlighted. These included –
• Difficult to navigate
• Poor search functionality
• Out of date information.
Work started with the current provider Public Partnerships Ltd (PPL) previously known as PCG for 2 plus 1 year contract.
As a result of the investment from Hull City Council we have put together a website which addresses the issues raised.
We are working through identifying page owners, who will receive an automated email every 4 months (in line with school terms) asking them to check their information is correct. We will run a report of these updates, and those who have not responded and this will be taken to the SEND Delivery Board for action.
We have also recently appointed Jo Young, who is the Family Participation worker for the Local Offer and will be engaging with children, young people and their families on areas of the Local Offer and this will be fed back to the Information Officer for action where appropriate. Jo will also be engaging with professionals to encourage them to keep information up to date.
Website BETA launch around 10 January 22, full launch in February. This is only the beginning, input from parents, children and young people in invaluable.
