Providing a constructive channel of communication between parent carers and strategic partners
Each year the Forum will focus on what you tell us is important, during 2019-2020 our focus is in the following areas:-
ADDITIONAL LEARNING NEEDS
CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE
Ensuring CAMHS are adapting interventions to meet the needs of disabled children and young people. This will mean appropriately adapted interventions, resulting in good mental health and wellbeing for children and young people in Swansea.
Developing clear pathways to services. This will mean there will be a clear pathway for children and young people and parent carers to access services.
To grow our membership and raise awareness of what we do. This will mean our collective voice will be heard by decision makers in Swansea and affect positive change where it is needed.
To empower parent carers to lead the development of parent carer participation founded on the principles of co-production in Swansea. This will mean there is a model of service delivery that is inclusive and empowers parents to be able to communicate effectively with service providers.
An overarching element to the work of the forum is to ensure that its priorities include pan disability and all ages from early years to adults where relevant.
