Parent Participation : Family United Network Parent 4th Annual Conference



This year’s conference has been organised based around feedback received at the last conference and improving the focus on Parent Participation. The aim is to offer parents\carers the opportunity to learn about changes to services, to contribute their knowledge and experiences and to learn about specific topics to support the family. FUN will be offering a selection of FREE workshops including: Sleep, Wills & Trusts,

Puberty & Adolescence and Managing Challenging Behaviour. All of these workshops have been carefully selected from the last conference evaluation.

Helen Redding (Assistant Director School Improvement Children's Services) will join the conference to de-mystify, in a parent\carer-friendly way, what the Local Offer is and what it really means to families.
