Kingston SEND Parent Carer Consortium

Kingston SEND Parent Carer Consortium is a monthly meeting (currently held online). 

It provides an opportunity for individual parents/carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and members of the Kingston SEND Parent Carer Forum to discuss important topics with members of senior staff, who are responsible for providing SEND children’s services for Kingston Council. Parents can directly ask questions and give feedback to the professionals responsible for services, such as education and social care, provided by Achieving for Children and other key stakeholders from health, such as the Integrated Care Board (ICB).

The purpose of the Consortium is to help guide and support our communication and consultation with parents and carers, and to help the Council, Achieving for Children and partners understand the needs of the wider SEND community.

Dates for future meetings 2024

All meeting are from 12 midday to 1:30pm.

  • Tuesday 12 March

  • Tuesday 21 May
  • Wednesday 19 June
