The forum in being led by Nicola Chappel who is leading the Parents Supporting Parents section of the project. She is being supported by Abi Fleming, the SEND Parent Engagement Champion.

This forum is a part of the Autism in Schools project. Through the Autism in Schools project, we will work with 10 local mainstream schools to improve the way that they support children with autism.

The forum is a place to listen and understand parents challenges and difficulties and recruit further parent autism champions to support on-going forums.​

The people involved in this forum will co-produce the final offer of support.

Other key actions will be developed following engagement and co-production workshops. ​
