Get involved in SEND Co-production and ‘Have your Say’ workshop opportunities

As you may know work is well underway to improve the way SEND support services are planned and provided for children, young people and families in Birmingham. It is a priority to us that we involve as many SEND parents and carers on this journey, so that we deliver the right support for families who use the SEND services in order to produce the very best outcomes for children and young people. 

We would like to thank all those parents who attended our first, very productive event before Christmas.   We will be holding 3 more events for parent/carer engagement so we can continue to hear your thoughts, ideas, views and experiences on co-production.   We would also like to hear your thoughts on the Local Offer website and how we can improve that resource, so please come with your opinions on the site. www.localofferbirmingham.co.uk

The next two events will be held online:

Saturday 22nd January 10am-12 noon click here to register

Thursday 27th January 10am – 12 noon click here to register

The 3rd of these events will be on 15th February 10am-1pm at Carrs Lane (central Birmingham) again, and will run as a workshop style event looking at co-production and the Local Offer website.  We will be offering refreshments at this event including a light lunch and a raffle for one of 25 wellbeing packs worth £20 each – click here to register

We respectfully state that these sessions will only look at SEND resources and engagement and we will not be to discuss individual concerns.  We would also respectfully ask that participants adhere to modelling positive behaviour.

We look forward to meeting you at one of the events and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Please be prepared to wear a mask inside the building, take a Lateral Flow test on the day of the event (please do not attend if you have any symptoms or your test is positive) and use hand sanitiser before entering the building.

Please note that if the government guidelines on gatherings change before this event, we will hold the event online in order that we meet in the safest way possible.
