Kingston & Richmond SEND Family Voices

SEND Family Voices bring people together into a community to improve services, share support and strengthen a common voice.   

By ensuring families are heard, we empower children, young people and their families to obtain the best possible care and services.   

We are a completely volunteer led parent/carer group that offer peer support through meetings, e-mail and telephone.  Families tell us that putting families in contact with each is one of the most useful things we do.

Alongside this we log all contacts that come to us via e-mail, telephone or through meetings; and translate this into an Issues Tracking Log which provides a firm evidence base for our local area.  This has provided a strong community voice which also supports a sense of well-being and community:

We are particularly proud of our film on Reasonable Adjustments, young people in their own voices: www.sendfamilyvoices.org/film
