Dear Parents and Carers

PLEASE read this proposed change of the Government bill, and sign the petition.

To explain more fully, please also follow the link to Steve Broach, who is a renowned barrister for SEND.  This will explain the changes fully, but in short the Care Act, Children and Families Act and the Mental Health Act will mean very little.

Please share with everyone.

In short, the government are planning to reduce all support to children, young people and adults with disabilities to receive the absolute minimum of care as a temporary measure due to the Covid 19 virus.

The Parent Forums across the country have worked for up to 10 years with families and service providers to enable our children to receive inclusive support and an education, and this bill will reduce all of this to practically nothing.  Even though it is temporary, we fear we may never get it back.

Thank you
