Planning for your future – transitions information event

It is a drop in event for young people with additional needs and their families (services aimed from year 9 upwards) no need to book.

Coffee Morning & AGM: listening to you

Please join us for tea / coffee, cake and a chat with other parents and professionals from the LA and health about the issues affecting our families as parents of children & young people with additional needs in Cheshire East.

We have decided to try something new for our AGM this year; rather than having a topic and speakers, we are going to try something less formal.

We have invited representatives from the services our families use (Cheshire East SEND, short breaks, commissioning, CEIAS, NHS, charities and more) to come along and meet Cheshire East parents who have children / young people with SEND. There’ll be information about Contact, services for carers and of course the expertise of all the other parents too.

We’d like it to be a constructive event: we all need to “tell it like it is”, but we also need to recognise we can’t change what’s has happened and to focus our energy on what can be done to make it better.  Hope to see you there! Did I mention cake….?

Members can claim their travel and childcare expenses in line with PCF policies.
