Why get involved?

You are the expert. If you are the parent of a child who has Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities, then you are an expert on the support and services that your child and their family need. Here is an opportunity for you to share this knowledge with others, including the professionals who make decisions that directly affect you.

You have insight. This is your chance to give local authority officers and other decision makers a unique insight into the impact of services on the lives of families with disabled children, and contributing to service development from the service users perspective.

Just by sharing information about your family you help 1 Hart, 1 Mind, 1 Future to understand the needs of children and young people with SEND in Hartlepool and inform our discussion with local decision makers. If 1 Hart, 1 Mind, 1 Future is well supported by Hartlepool parent carers then it is a clear statement that parent carers want to have a voice and to contribute to local and national decision making.
