In place of the March SEND Drop-in, which has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis, we have decided to run a Virtual Drop-in from 10am-12pm on the same day.
This is for the benefit of parents and carers of children or young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) who are looking to find information and support – including about Education, Social Care, Short Breaks, or any general information and advice.
From 10am to 12pm on the 25th of March, parents can reach out to us by email or on Facebook to share your stories and ask questions. We will try to help and signpost you to the relevant services and organisations who may be able to give you expert advice and support.
Alternatively, you can post questions on our Facebook Event Page for this Virtual Drop-in, so other people can benefit from knowing the answers and maybe fellow parents/carers can share answers and tips as well.
You can also contact any of the following services, who will be on call during this time to help:
