- Engagement – Have your voice heard
Have your say in the big issues affecting people with learning disability or autism and their families in Islington and North London.
At Centre 404 we offer many different ways for family carers to get involved:
Islington Parent Carer Forum
The Islington Parent Carer Forum is a parent-led group for parents and family carers of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) o to 25 years of age who live in Islington. This important meeting takes place every two months at Centre 404 and is a chance for parents to discuss matters that are important to them, participate in consultations and comment on developments in local and national disability services. It is an active group which has the specific aim to provide service providers with the views and concerns of their service user group.
Whenever possible, the meetings will be attended by one speaker from the council and/or other organizations. Attendees are encouraged to suggest what they would like to receive information and / or give feedback on.
