family voice southend-the Southend Parent forum

Who We Are

Family Voice Southend is made up of Parents who know how complex and difficult life can be as a family with a child or young person with a disability of any kind.

We are just like you, and we are here to help.

Our aim is to represent you to the providers of services in Southend for children and young people with SEND.

What we do

  • We make Parent and Carers views known to service providers

  • Hold information days and coffee mornings

  • Represent parents and carers on decision making boards including those that are ensuring the recommendations made by Ofsted and the CCG Joint Inspection are delivered

  • Provide information through website and newsletters

 We want to hear from you

This is your opportunity to express your views on things that effect your child such as:

  • S.E.N.D Reforms

  • Transition to adult services

  • Transport to school

  • Short breaks

and many more

So if you would like to help shape services in Southend for children and young people with SEND, please come along to one of our events or get in touch.
