Thank you to Manchester City Council’s Local Offer and Specialist Resource teams for co-producing the summer offer for SEND with families. We’re also grateful to Platt Fields Market Garden for offering their space and expertise to make this happen.

Much thanks to the Parent Champions for the excellent ideas they shared during the discussions with partners.
