Boards, meetings & projects

As well as the meetings and working groups below, which are attended by one or more Family Voice Norfolk representatives, there are regular Liaison meetings between steering group members and representatives of the local authority and health services. These are opportunities for us to raise matters of concern that do not fall within existing meetings or to ask for information on specific topics, such as  numbers of home-schooled children and rates of exclusions.

Family Voice ambassadors attend many additional meetings in schools or organise Family Voice stands at conferences – anywhere that parent carers of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities may be present.
