What is a "Local Offer" and why do we need one?

Compliments and complaints about Achieving for Children - Family Feedback Form


Family Feedback 

We have now officially launched the new electronic service user feedback process titled Family Feedback Form and this will replace any ad hoc feedback processes currently in place. Help us make a difference.

View the Family Feedback Form (Digital Form)

To gather feedback from young people and families (parents and carers) on the quality and impact of Achieving for Children services 

  •  To support practitioners and managers to understand the difference we are making and areas for practice development 
  •  To use the information and trends to track impact over time as part of our quality assurance work 
  •  To save time for practitioners and families by using a single feedback form 
  •  To support our evaluation work on our single practice approach (Signs of Safety) 


Achieving for Children (AfC) are committed to providing the best possible service and we want to work with you to resolve any      issues. Where possible we would like to resolve any disagreements locally and swiftly with families to avoid unnecessary worry and reduce anxiety. 

If you are unhappy with a service provided by AfC, or commisioned partners, you should tell a member of staff or the manager responsible for the service as soon as you can and they will see if they can sort it out. If your concern or issue is still not resolved it may be escalated to the Assistant Director within Achieving for Children who is responsible for the service area.

Disagreement resolution - independent support and advice

You can approach these services at any time to ask for advice or support.
