Great news to share about Parent Talks, 100 free tickets are available now but these are on a first come, first served basis.
All you need to do is click this link and fill in your details to register for Parent Talks -

What are Parent Talks?

  • Online Talks designed for Parents and Carers of children and young people with SEND
  • The talks offer clear advice and support from individuals with personal experience of SEND, parents, professionals and pioneers
  • Access whenever and wherever is convenient

For more information on the talks and the topics that will be covered, read more on our website -

The Seashell Trust has partnered with us to sponsor the 100 free tickets. The charity is dedicated to providing a creative, happy and secure environment for children and young people with complex and severe learning disabilities. The trust understands parents’ frustrations at the lack of information and support for families who have children with all types of special needs. We’re working together to help bridge that gap.

The tickets are usually £10 so if you do miss out, they are still great value. You can watch the 12 talks online, anytime from 26 June 2020.
