Staffordshire Parent Action Network (SPAN)

The Staffordshire Parent Action Network helps parents and carers of disabled children under the age of 25 make a difference to the services offered to them in Staffordshire. 

Formed in 2010 with funding from Aiming High for Disabled Children and support from SEND Family Partnership, SPAN are a group of Staffordshire parents and carers who want to collect your ideas and opinions.

They meet on a monthly basis and also attend the meetings of many service providers where we pass on your comments to assist them in providing better services for disabled children.  Many services also use their Network and the links they have to feedback decisions made and to evaluate provision at ground level.

There is now a strong core membership of ten people who are all working hard to make positive changes for disabled children and their families across Staffordshire.
