To write the report, the Shadow Board looked at all the themes that came up during the workshop in the breakout rooms and the feedback that was received after. From the themes and the discussions, the Shadow Board pulled together some recommendations for the Executive around how changes could be made according to the issues that were raised in the workshop.
The main report was sent to the KBSP Executive and Children's Delivery Group. The Shadow Board are awaiting feedback which will be published once this has been received.
Here is a summary of the full report:
