Have your say

Middlesbrough Council SEND & Vulnerable Learners Team, in partnership with local health and care services, are developing a family leadership programme to support and inform parents about key issues relating to SEND in Middlesbrough.

The aim of the family leadership programme is to offer a short training course to parents to provide an introduction to key services, signposting for additional support and understanding SEND in Middlesbrough.

To help us put the programme together, we would like to hear from you. We would like to know when and where would be best to deliver the training programme; we would also like to know what you think should be included in the content of the programme.
