Description


A letter from Derbyshire County Council:

Very many thanks so far for your support for the strategic review of support, services and provision for children and young people with high needs in Derbyshire. We are very grateful to colleagues for contributing views to the review so far.

You may recall that, at the start of the review, we planned to approach the work in three distinct phases. Phase one would focus on gathering and triangulating evidence about how arrangements for supporting young people with high needs is working currently. Phase two would focus on testing these findings and shaping strategic recommendations for the future. The final phase, phase three, would then focus on developing a strategic action plan for how these findings should be taken forward and the recommendations put into practice.

Our Isos colleagues have now completed phases one and two. Based on the evidence we have gathered and the discussions with partners such as you, we have drawn together our key findings and recommendations. As we move into the final phase of the review, we would like to engage you again in order to help shape the strategy and actions that will be needed to put the review’s findings into practice. We want to do this so that there is broad consensus across the system about what will happen as a result of the review and to ensure the review’s findings can be implemented effectively.

To do that, we would like to invite you to be part of a small discussion with some other parents / carers to help to identify some of the key opportunities for parents / carers to work with the local authority, schools and colleges, and other services to shape support and services for young people with SEND and high needs in Derbyshire. Throughout the review, this is what we have called “co-production”. The aim of the workshops will be to build on the work our Isos colleagues have done so far and to help to identify opportunities for co-production, and plan out with parents / carers what solutions they would like to see to some of the challenges the review has highlighted and the practical steps in which these solutions could be taken forward.

These workshops will be organised on a locality basis, to ensure that parents/carers are able to attend a workshop that is relatively local to them. We would like to invite you to attend the workshop on Thursday 7th March 2019 10.00 - 12.00. If you are unable to make this date there are 2 other workshops available. Please find details on how to book onto a different workshop at www.derbyshireparentcarervoice.org

We very much hope that you are able to attend. Isos colleagues have found the earlier discussions very useful in helping them to develop and shape the substance of the review, and we want to ensure that the final phase of the review can be completed in this spirit of co-production.

Many thanks in advance for your support for this important piece of work. If you have any questions please do not hesittate to get in touch with Derbyshire Parent Carer Voice at 01629533666, info@derybshireparentcarervoice.org or Mark Emly at 01629532969 mark.emly@derbyshire.gov.uk.
