NEW WORKING TOGETHER CHARTER LAUNCHED IN WARWICKSHIRE
5 May 2023
A new county-wide charter has been launched in Warwickshire, aimed at improving services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
The charter, which has been developed through collaboration between Warwickshire County Council, Coventry and Warwickshire Integrated Care Board, Warwickshire Parent Carer Voice, and IMPACT (the young people’s forum for SEND in Warwickshire), sets out a commitment for how partners across the local area will work together to ensure the voices of families with special educational needs and disabilities are heard in the development of SEND services.
The charter recognises the strategic role of Warwickshire Parent Carer Voice and IMPACT and commits services to working together to create a welcoming and caring space with open communication, valuing everyone’s contributions and working in partnership towards shared solutions.
It is hoped that the Working Together Charter will guide the local area work to provide services that meet the needs of children and young people with SEND, their families, and the wider community. It will also help to create a culture of effective participation, where the voices of children and young people with SEND are heard and valued.
