Parent carers from forums helped in the delivery of EHCP plan workshops across the country organised by Mott McDonald to support local areas in producing quality Education, Health and Care Plans. Parent carers gave presentations about how they were working with their LA to ensure quality in assessments and plans. Parents also talked about how LA and Health colleagues and parent carers and young people can work together to agree meaningful and aspirations education and life outcomes for disabled children and young people.
In Bath, the Somerset Parent Carer Forum co-presented with Sarah Hayes (SEN Caseworker Manager, Somerset County Council) and Shane Dangar from the Unstoppables Young People’s forum who explained how disabled young people are involved in decision making in Somerset and his role as a Young People’s champion.
