ST.HELENS PARENT CARER FORUM

ST.HELENS PARENT CARER FORUM

Are you the Parent/Carer of a child with SEND (Special Educational Needs and/or Disability)?

Why not come along to your Forum? It’s run by parent carers for parent carers

They are informal and a chance for you to meet other parents, find out about local services and have your say so that local services meet the needs of your children and young people.
