The Hive know so many wonderful families that have children needing extra support with some parts of their development. We know getting help and information can be so difficult, and we’d like to hear more to see what could be done to help get families the information they need, in the way that is most helpful for you.

Filling in this survey will help us know what services and information is helpful, what is too confusing or difficult to access, and give us an idea of what we could do to make the process easier for families.

We value your feedback and your experiences. We find families like to hear from other families in similar situations, so if you are happy to, it would be great if you tick the box at the end to allow us to share your stories, tips, or challenges either on social media, in a parenting resource, or in our talks with other organisations to advocate for better services. Your details would not be included, and everything is confidential.
