The full mapping exercise and consultation gathered 145 responses from organisations who support families and 50 responses from school staff and the Locality Operational Groups (LOGs) have now done a further exploration of the highlighted gaps. This provides valuable information on the strengths and gaps in the support available for families in Edinburgh.
Following the mapping exercise a Parental Consultation was carried out with the support of the Parent and Carer Support Collaborative resulting in 2,424 responses from parents and carers across the City. The full report from the consultation will be shared once this is collated.
