About the Forum

The Forums are held once a month at the Youth Centre.  Most months we will have speakers from organisations or local authority departments who are providers of services for children and young people with SEND.  There is also time for questions and discussion.  Occasionally we will not have a speaker arranged which give us an opportunity to talk to each other about the issues that we are experiencing - as we know the best advice usually comes from other parent carers.

They are informal meetings and we understand that some of you may need to arrive late or leave early due to your caring commitments.  Any Hounslow parent with a child or young person with any sort of disability is welcome to attend.

The aim is to provide information and also to give parent carers a chance to have their say about the services that are available for their children and young people.
