SEND Partnership update, PCF update and feedback

LISTENING TO YOU: PARENTS AND PROFESSIONALS SEND COFFEE MORNING

On Tuesday 11 June Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum invited parents and professionals working in SEND services to come together for a coffee morning so that people could share information and chat.

We started with an update from Mandy Dickson, Chair of Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum explaining what CEPCF does, what we have worked on in the last year and what we have planned for next year

Jacky Forster, Chair of the SEND Partnership Board then shared an update on what progress has been made in the SEND Partnership

We then sat down with coffees, teas (and some very good cakes!)

Parents were able to book ten minute appointment slots with some of the professionals attending, or to chat more generally with each other, with the PCF, CEIAS and the other professionals.

It was a trial run, and the feedback was really positive: Parents said “I’m really pleased I came” “Very useful, thank you” [What worked well?] “Everything! Great format!” and the important feedback “lovely cakes!”

We got some great suggestions and ideas on how to make the next one even better, and we were delighted that 100% of those who replied told us that if we run another parent & professional coffee morning they’d come so watch this space for the next one 🙂
