Somerset: Parents – we are listening to you!

We are delivering a series of road-shows in Somerset for parent-carers of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We want to meet you and are keen to hear your views and ideas at one of our road-shows.

  • ask questions about how SEND works in Somerset
  • learn how to get your point of view across successfully (training by Independent supporter Ben Mitchell)
  • vote on improvements to school buildings for SEND.
  • meet council officers and local volunteers involved in SEND.
  • find out about Core Standards and Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) and tell us what you and other parents need to know about these new developments
  • tell us what you think of the Local Offer website and try it out with friendly advisors (
  • meet other parents and representatives from the Somerset parent-carer forum
