Portsmouth Disability Forum has just launched an additional feature to its website – Our new SEN tab will now take you to The SEN Advice Centre which provides you, the parent, with information and support to help you make informed choices.  This part of the site aims to provide you with information and details to support you in your dealings with the Local Authority and schools.

We know for many parents finding the information they need can be a huge issue, we hope this new feature is easy to use informative and will help parents when making difficult decisions about schools and education.

‘As the City suffers more and more cutbacks, we believe parents need to tackle challenges from an informed position, which is what prompted us to develop this information centre’ says Lynne Rigby Principal Officer.

Below are just few of the topic areas covered in the section;

We are always keen to hear feedback be it positive or negative and receive ideas for further development areas.

All Together Better is a course open to young people with a special educational need or a disability and their parents.

We expect most young people attending to be aged 12 to 25 but it is not a problem if people are older or younger than this.

In the past the course has run in other parts of the country and has been successful.All together better

Young People can attend on their own, with their parents, or with someone who supports them.

Parents can also attend without their child or young person.

All together better2

On the course you will learn about how to have more control over the support you receive.

You will also learn about how health and care services work and how parents and young people can work to make those services better.

The course takes place on Fridays and Saturdays during the daytime in the spring.

The dates that the course will take place are 23rd and 24th of February, 9th, 10th, 23rd, and 24th of March, 20th, and 21st of April and will take place at The Frank Sorrell Centre in Southsea.

It is free to attend the course.

There will also be free lunch and refreshments when people attend the course.

We hope that 30 people will attend the course, 15 of them will be parents and the other 15 will be young people.

We know that some young people may find it difficult to attend the course because of problems with travel or getting time off from college or work.

If this is a problem for you and you would like to attend then we can help you to fix those problems.

If there is anything else we can do to make it easier for you to attend or to help you feel comfortable when you do attend then let us know.

If you would like to find out more you can send an email to ppvadmin@p-d-f.org.uk or call 07825185608.
