We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked  what you think about the four priorities identified to be included in the Draft Tayside Strategy for Parents 2019-23.

You Said

100% of parents agreed or strongly agreed that the priorities focus on the things that are important to them. You also told us what you thought was working well and identified areas you would like to see improvement. For example:

  • Improved access to information to support parents throughout their parenting journey
  • Improved schools communications to increase parental involvement, particularly focussing on parents of children aged 7 years and above.
  • Creating a consistency of family learning programmes across Tayside.
  • Promoting whole family approaches to assessments and service delivery.
  • Developing training to increase engagement skills and awareness of a range of issues affecting parenting.

We Did

The information informed the development of the Tayside Strategy for Parents 2019-2024 and parents views have been captured  in a short animated video  to promote the strategy  to parents and service providers.

Work has started in relation to developing and delivering an action plan which will address the strategies improvement priorities. A further consultation with parents in Autumn 2019 will help to inform this further.

We Asked

To help us make informed decisions, we asked for opinions on how we could make savings as budgets tighten.  

The public were asked to tell us:

  • how they feel about different service areas.
  • how they would make savings from the Council budget.
  • if they would change Council Tax and by how much.
  • their ideas on how the Council could generate additional income to offset the savings required.

You Said

1085 complete responses were received and considered. The results of the consultation are reported here.
