Northumberland Parent Carer Forum is the new Department for Education recognised parent carer forum for Northumberland. We work with the local authority, health and social care to improve services for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their families.
Communication is key to what we do. We listen to the experiences and wishes of families and make sure that those views are heard by those providing services, so that we can be part of every stage of planning and decision-making. Wherever possible, we aim to work in co-production.
You can find them on Facebook, Twitter or can contact via email.
In order to represent the views of children, young people with SEND and their families, we need to hear from as many families as possible.
Please look us up or get in touch.
We carried out a survey between 6 July and the 14 August 2020 to find out about the impact of COVID-19 on children, young people and their families with SEND in Northumberland. We received the largest number of replies to a SEND survey, with 426 families replying and sharing their experiences. Thank you.
The findings show the impact that lockdown has had on family mental health, describe the challenges of home-schooling and the ongoing worry families have about keeping their children safe during the pandemic. The report can be accessed in two formats
