Having Your Say on Staffordshire’s Short Breaks

27th July 2015

Tuesday 14th July 2015 10:00 – 12:00

Newcastle Library, 47 Ironmarket, Newcastle-under-Lyme, ST5 1AT.

If you are a parent or carer of a child/young person with disabilities and/or additional needs Staffordshire County Council wants to hear from you.

They would like to invite parents and carers to attend workshops on designing the Short Breaks offer in Staffordshire.

The purpose of each workshop is to:

Let you know about the findings and initial principles/recommendations from the 'Shaping the Future Programme' and what this means for the future;
Work with parents and carers to shape Staffordshire's future community Short Breaks Offer (Aiming High), through understanding what children/young people and their families want and need from a community based Short Break, and how this can be best achieved.

As there are limited places at each workshop pre-booking is recommend.

In addition to the workshops they will be visiting a number of Aiming High activities over the summer months to talk to children/young people and their parents/carers.

They will also be publishing surveys shortly to gain views and opinions.

Should you wish to book a place or have any further questions or queries, please contact either Amy or Emma at Aiming High via phone on 01785 278072
