Morning Event Saturday 4th March from 9.30 a.m. until 1.00 p.m.
Darke Hall, The Coach House, Green Park, Aston Clinton, HP22 5NE

For many parent carers, the thought of involving social services in the upbringing of their children and young people is a cause of distress. Whilst interventions from

professionals are usually welcomed, social care is viewed with suspicion. Yet for many young people with SEND and more significantly young adults with SEND, social care is the critical factor in helping families and young adults both cope and flourish. Hence the chosen subject for our next gathering.

Ruth Goodman, a Parent Carer and a Lecturer at Bucks New University, will provide a parent view of social care and how it can enable SEND children and young people achieve their outcomes. She will seek to give us a clearer understanding of the role of social workers and our part in the process.

In addition, we will have a briefing from the Children with Disabilities team on their current access arrangements and future service developments, along with an overview of current and future respite provision from Rona Hopwood, Children's Commissioner, Bucks CC.

There will also be a question and answer session for all our guest speakers which cannot be specific but will relate to the situations in which we find ourselves. We do hope this will empower parent carers to seek the support they need and for families to understand their position.

All parent carers are welcome but there will be no childcare on site.

There is no need to book but if you are intending to come and you can drop us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. it will help us ensure there are enough bacon rolls and cakes which will be served from 9.30 a.m!
