Co-production is the process of involving parents, carers, young people, SEND professionals, health professionals and us- Hertfordshire County Council in the planning and implementation of SEND services and the Local Offer.

The Young Commissioners

Hertfordshire County Council ensures that children and young people have their say in the services they receive and, since 2016, youth voice has been at the very heart of these services. Young Commissioners are young people from a diverse range of backgrounds from all over Hertfordshire. Some might be young people living away from home or care leavers, and some may have disabilities or learning difficulties. They are all committed to making change for the better. You can read more about the work of the Young Commissioners or get involved here.

The SEND online feedback group

Our online research group composed of parents and carers of children or young people with SEND and young people with SEND aged 16 - 25. Members of the group help to co-produce the Local Offer website and make improvements to SEND services with their feedback.

If you're interested in joining, you can read more about the SEND Online Feedback Group here. The group is sent occasional surveys or short online tasks that help make our services better. You don't have to be involved in every activity - you can do as little or as much as you want to, and tasks are never a test of ability.

Herts Parent Carer Involvement (HPCI) 

As Hertfordshire's parent carer forum, HPCI represents parent carers throughout the county, making sure their voices are heard across health, education, and social care services. As an independent parent led organisation, the HPCI team gather parent carer feedback and take that information to strategic meetings with decision makers and service leaders.  HPCI's purpose is to inform, shape, and improve services for children and young people with SEND, age 0-25.
