More than 160 parents and carers who have children with special needs in Cambridgeshire attended a support conference.
The annual Pinpoint conference gives families the opportunity to access the information and support they need for their children, as well as the chance to give feedback to the county council, health representatives, social care and other service providers.
Sarah Conboy, CEO, said: “Those of us who have children with special needs and disabilities will tell you how hard it is to get all the information you need to help your child. Days like today are vital in helping parents support their children.”
Mayor of St. Ives, Councillor Tim Drye, said: “I’m sure today will be great. It’s an honour to be able host families from across Cambridgeshire and to know that they will be going home knowing how to get help and support for their children. “
Pinpoint is a parent carer forum for Cambridgeshire that listen, engage and work together with parent carers for the benefit of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families.
