5 Feb Our Voice Parents' Conference 5th and 6th Feb 2019

The Our Voice Parents' Conference takes place 5th and 6th February, and booking is now open. 

See our information brochure for more information including a full agenda and workshop options. Please book day 1 (5th February) here and day 2 (6th February) here

This event represents an exceptional opportunity to hear from and talk to the Heads of all the key departments supporting SEND issues and other key professionals. We have listened to your feedback from last year, and as a result (and because we have been fortunate to secure additional funding from the Angle House Foundation) we will be holding the conference over two days and allowing more time for informal networking.

Tuesday 5th February   10 am to 2.30 pm (registration from 9.30) - Updates from Service area Heads followed by a Q&A panel session. The option to book one-to-one sessions with professionals to discuss specific issues and concerns relating to your child and a choice of different workshops - 'Positive Behaviour Support' or 'Finding SEND information', followed by 'Speech and Language' or 'Moving on'. Details of all these options are in our information brochure

Wednesday 6th February 10 am to 1 pm (registration from 9.30) - On the second day of the conference we are delighted that the Leader of Enfield Council, Councillor Nesil Caliskan will be coming along to talk to us about her plans for SEND funding, and to listen to the views of parents and other interested parties. As you know, SEND funding has come under huge pressure in recent years, so it is essential that we all make the most of this unique opportunity to give this feedback directly to the Council Leader as she considers her budget decisions.

Booking for this event is now open. 

Please book day 1 (5th February) here and day 2 (6th February) here

Thank you to our generous sponsors, the Angle House Foundation.
