The CYCJ Stakeholder Survey is a biennial exercise designed to gather the views of key stakeholder groups: practitioners; children and young people; parents and carers; and communities (via community councils). The purpose is to help shape both what we do by informing the content of the CYCJ annual workplan, and how we do it, by gathering views on our modes of delivery. In 2020 it was decided to postpone the survey, as the COVID-19 pandemic had reduced capacity within the CYCJ team and created additional pressures for many of our stakeholders, that we did not wish to add to. By 2021, many of these pressures had not gone away. We were also aware of consultation fatigue among our stakeholders. For these reasons we decided to simply issue a brief online stakeholder survey to our key stakeholder groups, with four separate surveys linked by one survey access point. The surveys were designed to be appealing and accessible to their target audience, although we are mindful that an online approach is not ideal for everyone, and we aim to return to a multi-modal approach in the next iteration of the Stakeholder Survey. The survey was distributed via our social media channels, e-bulletin and practitioner networks between November 9 and December 12, 2021. In total 266 responses were received, but when these were cleaned to only include surveys where the respondent had completed at least one substantive answer a total of 157 responses were retained.
