Engage Daily Update - 19 February
Barnardo's Core Priority Programme in Mental Health & Wellbeing - baseline provider survey (Renfrewshire & North Tyneside)
Within this survey Barnado's aims to capture how the values and vision of the strategic partnership is shared and practised across the mental health and wellbeing system more widely. The survey therefore focusses on supporting CYP & families, partnership working, and capacity within the system
This survey forms part of the baseline data collection within their evaluation. The first phase of this research aims to identify key stakeholders in each strategic partnership area and understand the broader context and system within which each strategic partnership exists. Within this, we are interested in understanding the system of support for the mental health and wellbeing from the provider/service delivery perspective.
Within this survey, we want to gather the perspectives of providers, i.e., those working directly with, or supporting, children and young people (CYP) and their families in delivering services, interventions, or support.
