Are you a parent, carer and/or professional interested in championing change and influencing policy for children and young people with special educational needs or disability (SEND)?
The Ambassador Volunteer Project is about helping parents and carers become informed about SEND, to know how to access DiAS (Devon information advice and support) services and to have their voice heard. There are already 20 volunteers trained to be a link with their local communities, so why not come and join the project!
The next training session is:
Tue, 17 March 2020, 10am – 2.30pm
Petroc, Tiverton Campus-Business Hub, Bolham Road, Tiverton EX16 6SH
By the end of the day you will:
- Understand what the Ambassador Volunteer project is and how the volunteer role works as a link between parents/carers, the Parent Carer Forum Devon and SEND local offer services to influence change for children with SEND.
- Have a greater awareness of DiAS services and how parents/carers can access information advice and support for children with SEND.
- Understand the key principles of volunteering.
A light lunch and refreshments throughout the day are provided. You can book your place on Eventbrite.
