Join this live webinar on Wednesday 1 February 12.30 – 1.30pm
Transforming Care is an all age programme for children and young people (and adults) with learning disabilities, autism or both, which aims to transform the way that care and services are provided to help children and young people have a meaningful and positive life. The programme also aims to prevent children and young people with learning disabilities and/or autism who also have behaviours that challenge or a mental health condition being admitted to specialist hospitals such as Assessment and Treatment Units (ATUs).
In local areas, Transforming Care Partnership Boards are leading on this work to improve services and the lives of children, young people and adults with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism.
This webinar will explain why Transforming Care is so important, what it really means for children, young people and their families, what is happening in your local area, how it relates to and overlaps with the Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, (SEND) agenda and how you can get involved to shape transformation. It will also explain what individual parents can do when things are not working for you and your child, particularly if your child may be at risk of being admitted to hospital.
Mary Busk, National Network for Parent Carer Forums, (NNPCF) Steering Group member for London, has been an integral member of the national advisory group for Transforming Care for children and young people and will be presenting the webinar alongside Sue North, the Children’s Social Care and Education Adviser for the Transforming Care programme.
