Central Bedfordshire parents, whose children access special educational needs services, are being invited to the first in a series of events to create a different way of working with us, health services and the area’s parent carer forum.

This comes following the recent joint Ofsted and Care Quality Commission inspection into special educational needs and / or disabilities (SEND) services across the area, as well as feedback from parents.

Sue Harrison, said:

We have been working for some time with SNAP, our parent carer forum, to plan a different way of engaging with a wider group of parents and these sessions will be the start of a big conversation about SEND services.

It’s important that as many people as possible attend these meetings so they get the opportunity to contribute and share their experiences.

There will also be further opportunities for parents and young people to contribute to our planning and delivery of services as, over the next 12 months, we will hold more sessions across Central Bedfordshire. We look forward to working with parents and young people.
