Together achieving better decisions and brighter futures for Manchester families of children and young people aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)


Coffee Morning at Loreto College

Hi all,

I went to a great parents coffee morning at Loreto College last Friday with Julie Hicklin (SEND Lead in Manchester), Judith from Information, Advice and Support Manchester (IASM), and Sou Johnson SEN caseworker.

They had a great turn out. I was talking to parents for 2 and a half hours, which was really good. I found that so many more parents have not heard of us and I’m happy to say that I got lots more parents to join the forum. Again, language was a small barrier so we need to find a way to address this.
