Social Care Evidence

We are again calling for evidence for Social Care, we are supporting Social Care Managers of the Disabled Children’s Team by giving evidence from parents and carers when they have not been given the support they require for their child/young person with SEND and their families.

So far we have taken forward 9 cases which have been looked into again to ensure the correct decision has been made.  Where necessary cases have been reopened for an assessment to take place.  We hope in the future we are able to offer you a case study to see how we have worked together to make services better.

Our next meeting is January 24th 2017 please email us using the form below or info@derbyshireparentcarervoice.org
