Description

Accessing Public Services Workshops

Public bodies have certain legal duties to provide health, social care and other services for children and/or young people with disabilities, but families can find it difficult to access these services. With this in mind Cerebra were awarded a grant to run a research programme to identify common problems that prevent families accessing services and to find ways to solve these problems. A programme has been developed which includes an Accessing Public Services Toolkit and workshops to accompany the toolkit.

By the end of the workshop parent/carers will be able to:

  • Identify commonly occuring problems facing families accessing services and recognise different types of dispute

  • Come up with problem solving approaches to these problems

  • Use a number of template letters when corrosponding with public bodies

The workshop includes a number of case studies relating to direct payments, Disabled Facilities Grants, residential placement and school transport.

If you are a parent/carer of a child or young person with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability and would like to attend this workshop, please book your place here. Or telephone 01629 533666 to request a booking. Places are limited so don’t leave it too late to book your place!
