Currently Gateshead does not have a Parent Carer Forum so we have asked Contact to work with parents to set up a new Forum in our area to represent the views and aspirations of families of children with SEND by working in partnership with the Local Authority, Health and other providers to ensure that services are providing the best possible resources for your children and young people.
An initial meeting has been arranged to discuss how parent participation and co production might be developed further in our area. It is essential that as parents/carers that it is your voice that is heard in the design and development of services for your children and young people. Please see the attached invitation to this meeting. It would be great to see you there. Please feel free to share this with other parents/carers that may be interested in getting involved.
The meeting will take place on 29th January 10-30am to 12-30pm at
Gateshead Civic Centre
RSVP: Catherine Ratcliffe (Contact) via email firstname.lastname@example.org
