SEND Parent Carer meetings

The SEND Parent Carer meetings are held twice a month during term time.

These meetings bring together your local parent carer forum, NELPCF, professionals from education, health and social care and guest speakers from around the borough to work with us on important topics that have been highlighted by NELPCF and the parents that engage with them.

The purpose of this group is for families of children and young people with SEND to have involvement in meaningfully working together with local leaders of SEND to co-produce the education, health and care information, advice, guidance and services that they need.

Learn more about the parent carer forum NELPCF.
