DMBC issued the following statement in response to the post inspection report released on the 16th July.

"Dudley MBC knows that every child or young person deserves the very best, but they also recognise that they do not yet deliver this on a consistent basis in Dudley. The inspectors have found a number of areas of significant weakness. But they have also identified some areas of strong practice".

Join us at this event to;

  • See some incredible young people living with long term conditions and disabilities tell their stories

  • Hear feedback from the inspection

  • Take part in the SEND panel question time *

  • Listen to the National Network of Parent Carer Forum describe their nationally agreed co-production approach

  • Get excited about the launch of 'Care and Share' a platform built by parent carers for parent carers. Our aim is to make sure that all parent carers in Dudley have a voice and are able to become better advocates for themselves, their child / young person or their peers by contributing to forum activities and groups from wherever they are on any device!

*The Panel will respond to a number of preprepared question set by parents. We would love to recieve your questions for panel members, who are Martin Samuels - DMBC Strategic Director of People, Neil Hoskinson DMBC Head of Educational Outcomes and SEND Lead, Santokh Dulai DMBC Head of Dudley Disability Service, Neil Bucktin Dudley CCG Director of Commissioning, DR Tim Horsburgh Dudley CCG DMO and Clinincal Lead for Childrens Services.

If you wish to submit a question follow this link 'Time to have your questions answered' where you will be asked to sign up to the online community forum, here you will be able to see the questions other parents are posting and stay engaged in the conversation prior to the event.

We can promise you a really warm welcome and an interesting, informative, thought provoking session.
