Details of local and national consultations affecting children and young people with a disability or additional need will be detailed here.
‘Consultation is a step up from simply giving information as it requires a two-way communication. Bromley Parent Voice host regular open meetings and focus groups to seek parents views on how services can be improved. Formal consultations are held when changes to services are planned. As many parents as possible should be informed about proposed changes to a service and invited to give their ideas and raise concerns about the proposals before final decisions are made. Parents’ views can change process and decision making.’
