We had over 50 parents & carers of children/young people with Special Educational Needs &/or Disabilities attending and was an event enjoyed by all.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org

We need to make Derbyshire’s Local Offer Better!
The Local Offer simply aims to pull information about available services into one place and make it clear and accessible for you and your family.
We want to make sure that the Local Offer is not just doing what it says it’s doing, but also doing what you want it to do.
We would really appreciate your feedback and taking part in this survey will help us to gather opinions and feedback to the Local Authority.
Please click on the link below to take part.
If you have any questions about the survey then please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

IPSEA Training Day
After receiving lots of information from parents & carers about their experience in trying to get a Social Care Assessment through Starting Point and not being given the correct information or procedures not being followed, we have spoken to Disability Social Care Management and they have requested information from families to evidence where the system is not working. This is for the full assessment to be carried out in relation to Section 17 of the Care Act not the decision made from this assessment.
What we would like you to do is send Lisa Hodgson an email detailing your experience, this will then be complied with all other evidence and discussed with managers on the 21st October. So the information can be compiled we ask for the evidence to be with us by the 18th of October.
Please email Lisa Hodgson
We would expect an update by the middle to end of November.
Thank you for time, we hope to make this process easier for families.
