A general discussion space to share views and experiences and ideas to resolve issues. Please understand the Dudley Parent Carer Forum can not and does not deal with individual personal cases but will feed back the collective views and experiences to the SEND Partnership Board and other Strategic Boards that may serve to improve SEND service delivery across Dudley

"if calls to the SEN team were answered the first time and calls were returned volume would decrease, this is not an excuse, you still do not get return calls or emails 
email box - emails are not answered
Detention / suspension is appropriate to call SEN team about as it involves reasonable adjustments.

"family support workers are moderately trained to support our families, what training will they have?

Many families do not have a social worker despite disabled children and disabled parents, Dudley do not support these families

is there a flag system on the 'spine' saying LD/SEND/ASD etc so that there is an alert of needs?

How will things change with the current management?"

"Stabilising team retain staff - the panel may be permanent members of staff but the SEN team constantly changes, 8 case officers in 2 years for 1 child is not good enough."

" Everything depends on who your social work, SLT, Dr is etc you get to then how much support and advice you get. if you get a good one then your life as a parent/carer is made a lot easier. Otherwise we have to break down to get a result.
