September/October Events

We have workshops coming up in September and October

We hope that you have had an enjoyable summer break and we wanted to let you all know about the events we have coming up!

Northumberland Parent Carer Forum, In It Together, is working with Northumberland County Council to raise awareness of local services and support for Children and Young People with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families.

Over 30 services are taking part in the Roadshows including NHS representatives, Social Care, Disabled Children's Team, Education and Training Providers, and Voluntary Organisations.

Roadshows will be drop in events and you do not need to book and will take place from 10am to 4pm, on;

Thursday 20 September at Hexham Mart, Tyne Green Hexham, NE46 3SG

Monday 1 October at Ashington Hirst Welfare Centre, Alexandra Road, Ashington, NE63 9HN

Thursday 25 October at Alnwick Rugby Club, Willowburn Avenue, Alnwick, NE66 1BE

Roadshows will include a range of information, advice and support that Families Children and Young People aged 0 -25 with (SEND) would find useful.

There will also be information about opportunities in education, supported employment, leisure, as well as information about specific conditions such as Autism and Dyslexia. Northumberland County Council are running workshops at these events to share with parents and carers the Northumberland Graduated Approach for Special Educational Needs.

This Graduated Approach sets out how schools can support children and young people with SEND and what different types of support are available to match differing levels of need and how they can be accessed.

There will also be the opportunity for families to feedback about the information the council provides on local services and support for Children and Young People aged 0-25 with SEND which is called the ‘Northumberland Local Offer’.

If you know of any groups or organisations in your area who may not know about these events please ask them to get in touch as we have a few places still available for stall holders.

We are really looking forward to seeing you at these events please can you share this information with your other parents, friends, schools and colleagues, if you require more information please contact In It Together by calling 07729192909
