Are you interested in improving services for families of children and young people with additional needs and /or disabilities in Suffolk? Do you have a bit of time you could spare?
The role of parent representatives (reps) is to inform decision makers about the experiences of parents and carers and to ensure that parents' views are fed into decisions about children and young people's services at a strategic level.
Come and meet the SPCN team and find out about the parent rep role. Each parent rep’s role is tailored to you and what you can offer so you don’t have to be able to give set amounts of time or be available on a weekly basis.
Training is provided and you also have the opportunity to attend regional or national conferences / workshops / training. Expenses and remuneration costs can be claimed for meetings you attend on behalf of SPCN.
Our first ever Parent Rep information day is being held on Monday 12th March 2017 at Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre, Twelve Acre Approach, Kesgrave, Ipswich, IP5 1LF.
The day will run from 10am until 1.30pm and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
