Emotional Health and Wellbeing Conference
On Monday 26th February 2018 Suffolk Parent Carer Network will be hosting an Emotional Health and Wellbeing Conference at The Blackbourne Centre, Elmswell. Anyone with an interest or involvement in Emotional Health and Wellbeing in East and West Suffolk will be welcome - especially parents and carers. It will be an opportunity for us to celebrate the work that has happened so far in the Transformation Plan and also to share the exciting developments in services which will be going live in Spring 2018.
Offer free information sessions for parents and carers around the process of SEND support and practical strategies for working positively with schools and the local authority.
If you are a group of parents, we could come to you to deliver a workshop where you meet. Or if you know some parents who might like to get together for a workshop we could explore a place and time to suit. We will do our best to fit around your needs.

SEND YP Survey
Help us get the views of children and young people with SEND
The SEND YP survey is one way that you can empower children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities to share their experiences. We want to hear how the services they access impact on their lives and the choices they make about their futures. You can find the online survey at - www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/SENDCYPsurvey
An easy read version and a widget version are available to use too. Visit the SEND YP Network page on The Source website to download them. If you would like someone to come into your education setting and carry out the service face- to-face please email email@example.com.
