20 Mar Empower to Achieve: our successful event

Thank you to all the parents/carers of children and young people with SEND who attended our free event: Empower to Achieve.

This Southwark Parent Carer Council event followed on from last year's event SEND: Inspire to Aspire, which looked at aspirations and outcomes for children and young people with SEND. 

Our Empower to Achieve event took place on Thursday 17 March at Inspire, Walworth Road.

The event focused on empowering parents/carers, children and young people and their families for the future, by finding out more about changing services and your legal rights. 

There was a panel of speakers and a chance to book a one-to-one consultation with representaives from Southwark Council and the Local Offer. 

We will be posting a report on the event soon.

18 Dec Hospice Research Needed from Carers

Are you a parent or carer of a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening illness? Have you been so in the past? If so, we’d like to hear from you.

Sean’s House Hospice Support, Demelza Hospice Care for Children and Goldsmiths, University of London are collaborating on a research project. They want to understand more about the experiences of families in the Lewisham and Southwark areas of London whose child has been diagnosed with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition.

They would particularly like to talk to families in the New Cross and Peckham areas; however all carers in the same boroughs and in the same situation are invited to participate. They encourage contributions from all ethnic backgrounds.

Your contribution will be confidential. The researchers want the research to help improve local support for families.

If you are interested in taking part, and would like to find out more, please email Maisie at:
