A full pre-engagement and consultation process was undertaken before the award to these contracts. This was undertaken with children, their families, stakeholders and partners. This was a full public consultation. Consultation with service users, in different forms has been completed as part of the current contracts. This has clearly evidenced developing and sustained good practice, with improved outcome for our vulnerable children and their families. Feedback informs us that services are accessible to children and their families and that they feel engage into a programme of support, that they feel listened to and valued.

No further consultation is planned for the extension of the contracts
