Capturing the experiences of SEND parents and carers in Barnsley
Parents and carers of children and young people with SEND in Barnsley are invited to share their experiences and ideas.
There are a range of online sessions taking place between July and September which will focus on setting the scene for working in partnership to co-produce our future SEND strategy.
The sessions will be groups where parents and carers will be able to come together to share experiences from throughout their SEND journeys. Each session topic will be repeated tso you can come when it suits, and different themes will be explored over the course of the sessions, which all parents/carers are welcome to attend.
What’s working well? What could be better? How do you think it could be improved?

If public group sessions or the online platform doesn’t work for you, please get in touch to arrange an alternative and we will make sure you get the chance to be part of the discussion in the way that works for you.
