Parent Carer Hub and SEN and Inclusion (SENI) Services Surgeries
After trialling parent carer drop in sessions and SEN Surgery sessions it has been decided to contiune with the programme and to combine them as a parent carer hub.
The idea for these originally came about after we gathered evidence from parent carers that they were finding the new system confusing and difficult to navigate; parent carers have been reporting to FVP that they do not know where to go to get help and support especially around EHC needs assessments and support in school.
The idea of the Inclusion surgeries was to provide a base for parent carers to have direct access to SEN services in Peterborough at times convenient to them and their families. The first session took place as a pilot and was attended by parent carers and a senior manager from SAMs. This session was well received with the parent carers having the opportunity to watch a presentation all about the new system and the SAM service followed by 1:1 sessions if required with the senior manager.
We have been running the Hub on a monthly basis on Mondays and are now looking to continue running sessions for the rest of the academic year.
The Hub will take place on Mondays once a month from November 2018 to June 2019
The Hub will run between 1pm and 4pm with 1:1 slots available with SENI Service Professionals (booking essential).

Themed SEND Workshops
After asking parent carers what topics they would like to see and learn more about, we have listened and will be working with practionners to provide a series of topic specific workshops; from SEN support through to continence services. Workshops will be free to attend and will provide parents with information and support.
