Information, Advice and Support (IAS) Manchester are setting up an exciting project in the North of the city and would like to extend an invitation for parent-carers to join it.

Getting involved with this project will give participants the opportunity to learn from experienced trainers with in-depth knowledge of SEND, the law, working with professional services and advocacy. The programme will include:

  • Introductory training on SEN legislation by Claire Jackson, who has extensive experience delivering legal training to large groups of parent/carers, professionals (including local authorities/NHS staff), schools and those working within statutory services
  • Training delivered by Geraldine Hills from the Inclusive Choice Consultancy on getting your message across and the Equality Act
  • Access to support and mentorship from an IAS Case Worker
  • Ongoing briefings and further training on SEN matters as the Pilot evolves
  • A resource pack with useful information
  • Reasonable transport expenses to events

Participants will be able to use their experiences to help other parents & carers and work alongside practitioners from a range of services.
