In It Together are standing down as the DfE funded Parent Carer Forum in Northumberland for children and young people aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Contact is a charity for families with disabled children that is working in Northumberland to ensure that there are new and effective arrangements established to ensure the voice of children, young people and their families continues to inform the work we do. Contact will be holding a number of meetings and would like to hear the views of parents and carers on how you think a new Parent Carer Forum would work best.
