KIDS is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the contract to support and facilitate Parent and Carer Participation and Engagement in Barnsley.  Following an initial contract meeting last week; KIDS is now working to secure a local office base and to recruit a full time coordinator to support this work.  In the coming weeks and months we are looking forward to meeting and hearing the views of a wide range of parents both from existing groups and networks and also those new to participation; actively engaging with as many parents as possible.  We will also be looking to develop a parents steering group to work closely with the local authority, SENDIASS, schools, settings, health providers etc.

We will be posting our local contact details soon, but in the meantime for any parents wishing to be involved please contact our Regional Director, Sue Cawkwell [email protected]
