Please join us for the upcoming online learning session The Children’s Social Care Review – “The Case for Change” taking place on Thursday 24th June at 12:00 midday via Zoom. 

Please email parent.participation@contact.org.uk ASAP if you would like to make us aware of any accessibility issues, so that we can assist your access to the session.

In January, the government announced a review into children’s social care.  The review team has been working with stakeholders across the Children’s social care system to understand their experiences and thoughts on the children’s social care system . The NNPCF have been working with the review team to ensure the voice of parent carer forums is heard and that the review understands and considers the unique challenges faced by our families. The review team will be publishing their “Case for Change”, which outlines what they have heard and on the 24th June, Josh McAllister the independent chair of the review, will join a webinar hosted by Contact and the NNPCF to share the “Case for Change” and what it means for children and young people with SEND and their families.

Please note if you are unable to attend on the day, a recording of the webinar session along with relevant documents will be available shortly after the webinar on our Resource Pages.
