Central Bedfordshire Council want to make sure that our services are meeting the needs of local families and their children. To help us to do this we are asking you to complete this short survey and share your views about your involvement with our social work teams. It will help us to make sure we have done all we can to help you to achieve your goals and to enable us to do things better in the future.
To complete this survey you will need to have the Personal Reference Number (PRN) from the paper survey that you received from Children's Services.
Superfast broadband could be winging its way to most of Central Bedfordshire and you can help by completing a survey to show just how much demand there is for the service.
Superfast broadband would mean people could download music, games and films more quickly, and websites would download faster too. And for businesses the service would boost opportunities to access global marketplaces and allow more companies to offer flexible working to employees. Please read the Joint Local Broadband Plan (PDF 991KB) (the JLBP) for more information.
Please take part in the survey online.
