Why are we doing this?

It has been especially challenging to be expecting and/or a parent of a young child in recent times. The Coronavirus pandemic has shown the value of support services and provision for pregnancy and the early years more than ever. Many of you will have experienced a feeling of isolation followed by relief as services and provision opened up again. Well done for making your way through!

Wrexham County Borough Council has asked Children in Wales to carry out a consultation with parents to look closely at the maternity and early years services that are offered to you and your child.

Support/advice – if you feel you need further support, or would like to discuss things further please contact Wrexham Family Information service 01978 292094 or fis@wrexham.gov.uk

What do we want to know?

Have you ever thought: Why are they doing that? Where did that idea come from? I would have done it differently. How can I say what I think? Why haven’t they asked me? 

This is your chance for your voice to be heard and have input into the services YOU use.

Why are we doing this?

It has been a challenging period to work in maternity and early years services during recent times. The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the value of support services and provision into sharp focus. Many parents will have experienced feelings of isolation followed by relief as services and provision opened up again. Equally, practitioners have needed to balance their own family needs whilst working in extraordinary circumstances. Parents and practitioners are to be congratulated for making their way through this difficult period.

Wrexham County Borough Council has asked Children in Wales to carry out a consultation with both parents and practitioners to look closely at the provision of maternity and early years services offered in the county.  Focusing on quality, sufficiency of provision; integration across services, transition between provision and involvement of parents/carers.

This is your chance for your voice to be heard and to provide input to enhance services in your area.

What do we want to know?

We want to give you, as practitioners, an opportunity to share your views, and for you to voice your opinion on the services and provision in your area. This survey has been created to gather your thoughts and opinions to feed back to Wrexham County Borough Council, so as to identify any gaps in provision or improvements that could be made.

Why are we doing this?

Wrexham County Borough Council is currently consulting for stakeholder opinion on Rear Loading Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles, and their potential suitability for licensing as Hackney Carriages.

Introduction

The licensing authority has a set criteria in terms of hackney carriage vehicle safety certification and any licensed vehicle must meet stringent tests in terms of road safety and fitness for purpose. Rear Loading Wheelchair accessible Vehicles are currently available for licensing as Private Hire Vehicles but not for Hackney Carriage use.

Hackney Carriages

Unlike Private Hire Vehicles, Hackney carriages must be suitable for collecting wheelchair users from a ‘Hackney Carriage Rank’. A rank is collection point, whereby licensed Hackney Vehicles may queue and wait in turn for customers to approach the rank. There are several Hackney Carriage Ranks in the county area and these are all located within Wrexham Town Centre. All customers enter the vehicles via the side of the vehicle, with Wheelchair users using an access ramp.

Hackney Carriages also have the permission to be ‘hailed down, by pedestrians in the street.

The information you provide will be treated confidentially, in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Principles. Any data provided by you will be processed in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act and in its provision, you consent to the Council processing the data for the purpose for which it is obtained provide for it.
Any personal information will be treated in the strictest confidence and will only be used by the Council or disclosed to others for a legally permissible purpose.
We use consultation and engagement activities to ask to you have your say on a range of topics. We want everyone in our community to have the chance to join the discussion about the services we design and deliver; and to help shape the future of Wrexham County Borough.
The thoughts you share with us will be used to inform this consultation. We may also share anonymous feedback in the future to help shape other Council and partner consultations and services, to inform work we deliver together. This may help us avoid asking the same or similar questions many times. We hope by taking this approach the future of services in Wrexham will be more focussed on what matters most to the people of Wrexham.

What do we want to know?

If you are a hackney carriage licence holder (particularly a user of Hackney Carriage Ranks) or a wheelchair user and customer of the rank, or are affected in another way by the Hackney Ranks, this authority seeks your opinion on this matter.

Key issues will be:

  • Would a Rear Loading Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle be able to safely and effectively operate within the method of operation of a Hackney rank, without causing unnecessary disturbance to customers and users of other vehicles on the rank? EG currently, vehicles queue for customers and passengers are loaded into the side of the vehicle, while the next vehicle in line, waits directly behind.

 

  • Would a Rear Loading Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle be able to conveniently and safely collect wheelchair users ‘hailing down’ the vehicle in the street, where a rank was not available?
