Knowledge is Power - Parent SEND Information Sessions

Description

What are these sessions? 

Knowledge is Power Information Sessions are for Parents or carers living in Hackney who have children with SEND. This often means they will be interacting with services and processes that are different from mainstream processes. 

These information sessions will help you understand more about key services and processes. 

They are scheduled to run through the year at key times so that if you have to follow a process you will have information to help you understand and an opportunity to ask questions if these have not been addressed during the workshop.
