Advice and Support
As a SEND family you cannot always easily access the same activities and child care options as other families. You may also need resbite care for your child and support to allow you and your family to cope with the day to day life of living with a child with SEND. Please find below local options and opportunities for your family.
The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. The offer will include provision from birth to 25, across education, health and social care and leisure.
The SENDIASS Team offers free and impartial advice to parents and young people with SEND who are residents within Tower Hamlets or City of London. Some of the ways we can support you are:
Attending meetings with schools / professionals
Applying for an Education Health and Care Plan
Mediation with the Local Authority
Preparing and attending SEND Tribunals
Policies & Procedures
City Parent Carer Forum is committed to celebrating diversity, positively promoting equality, fostering equal opportunities and tackling discrimination, in all it does. This policy should be read and adhered to in conjunction with all our other policies.
A financial policy helps protect the parent carer forum and the individuals who run it. It aids you in monitoring your finances, helps ensure you obtain value for money and is good practice for any organisation in receipt of a grant.
