Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum invite registered Parent Carers of children with disabilities and/or Special Educational needs to gather together and help us draw evidence from parents about their experiences with their child and the services they use around disability and SEN. (Good and not so Good)

This is a crucial opportunity for parents to meet and share views, which are collated, anonymised and submitted to service providers. It provides an excellent opportunity to influence change by speaking as “one” Parent Carer voice.

The importance of this exercise in listening to parent views and opinions is taken very seriously by service providers (such as LCC, NHS etc), so much so that seven managers have offered to individually speak in private 1:1 appointments to parents about their individual concerns/experiences during the event.

We have the following representatives from Lincolnshire County Council, Health and Liaise, kindly attending to speak to registered parents on a one to one basis about their issues:

  • SEND Team – 0-16yrs, (covers things like support in schools, EHC plans etc) & Post 16.
  • SEND Team -Transitions Quality and Audit Officer (coordination of Transitions)
  • Adult Social Care Intake Team.
  • Early Support & Care Co- ordination Team (ESCO)
  • NHS Designated Clinical Officer (DCO) for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).
    (covers Health care services for children & young people with SEND)
  • Liaise (SEND information & Advice Service)

If registered parents would like to book a 10-minute slot to talk to any of the above managers about any issues you may have, please provide outline details in your booking form in Section 4 and we will contact you.

There is also a chance to meet some of your LPCF team, find out more about what LPCF achieves and meet other like-minded parents. (Parents attending will also be offered refreshments, a buffet lunch and the chance of a FREE max card).
