Where to go
- Area served
SPCN cover the whole of Suffolk
- Age Groups
- Pre-school, 16-25 years, Children (5-11), Young people
Anyone who lives in Suffolk who is or has been a parent, carer, grandparent, foster parent or guardian that cares for a child or young person aged between 0-25 with additional needs and/or disabilities, or someone with a professional interest in the provision these children and young people need. We do not limit our members to children and young people with a particular need. Your child or young person could have a number of issues from Autism to Down’s Syndrome. Your child or young person does not have to have any kind of diagnosis for you to be a member of SPCN.
- Service users involved in planning
We facilitate two–way communication between parents and carers and services and we work to provide feedback on services, offer constructive challenge to current services and have input into decision making and planning for future service provision
- Last Updated
- Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities
SPCN will be a well informed, connected and empowered community of families of children and young people with disabilities or additional needs, offering support to each other and working in partnership with service providers to create quality services that meet the needs of these families.
Members of Suffolk Parent Carer Network will work collectively for all families, respect each other’s views & make best use of one another’s skills & resources.
We aim to provide opportunities for parent carers to influence the decisions that affect their families and to contribute to developing services that meet the needs of their children and young people.
