SNAP (Special Needs Action Panel) Parent Carer Forum
SNAP (Special Needs Action Panel) is a pro-active, independent forum of parent carers who all have children or young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). As members of the National Network of Parent Carer Forum’s we support the development of parent carer participation, a process in which parents work together with professionals to make improvements to local services.
SNAP’s purpose is to improve the services provided for our young people, aged between 0 and 25 years.
To become a member of SNAP PCF you must be a parent of a child or young person with any Special Educational Need and/or Disability (a diagnosis is not required) aged between 0-25 and live in Central Bedfordshire. It is free to join, please complete our SNAP Membership Form, we give our members a free Max Card and you will be invited to attend all of our events.
As parent carers, the team brings a real-life perspective and experience to the planning and development of the services that families use. By continuously working with us and ‘co-producing’ any change, the team is successful at securing the changes that are needed to benefit all children and young people living with SEND in the county. Successful co-production ensures that we, along with the Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), can be confident from the outset that the services we are designing or providing reflect what local families actually want and need.
