Short Breaks

In May, we ran a series of Parent Panels to gather parental views on the BCP Short Breaks service.  We put this feedback along with feedback gathered from a previous event and produced a report which we sent to BCP Council.
We have since had a couple of meetings with BCP SEND Commissioners about our next steps.


In 2022 the Learning Disability and Autism Programme NHS England, funded the Southwest region of Parent Carer Forums to undertake a project to understand the transition experiences of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). (See Appendix b) The project collected experiences of 225 individual parent carers across the Southwest and the collective feedback from the parent carer forums across the region. The research found variability within the experiences and identified 5 key themes which impacted on the transition process.
