Communication of SEND services

  • Status: Open
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Education, Children's services
  • Type: Public

Tell us how you want to hear about information on SEND services and how you can be supported to participate in decision making.

Shropshire’s 0-25 Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) Board wants to hear from children and young people with SEND and their families about how you wish information to be communicated, and the kind of information you want to know about. It also wants to know how you can be best enabled to participate in decision making when planning individual support and developing services.

The reason we're asking is to make sure you and your family know about the services and support that already exist for you, and how and where you can find information about them. We also want to ensure that services are designed to best meet the needs of those who use them.

To help us gather this information, we've put together some questions in a survey for you. 

Your feedback to this survey will help us to develop an effective communication and participation strategy for Shropshire. This will help us improve the way we communicate with you and will help us put together the right information that you need through the communication channels of your choice. It will also help to ensure that children and young people with SEND and their families have a genuine voice in local decision making and designing their own support.

About the 0-25 SEND Board

The 0-25 SEND Strategic Board in Shropshire includes representatives from education, health and social care services and from voluntary organisations who work with children and young people with SEND and their families, including a parent carer rep. The board is responsible for carrying out the work of the Shropshire SEND Strategy, whose vision is to ensure that:

Shropshire children and young people with SEND are healthy, happy and safe, and able to achieve their full potential with support from a strong partnership between families, the voluntary sector and service commissioners.

The Shropshire Parent & Carer Council (PACC) website has more information on participation.
