Earlier this month, a group of Tots100 bloggers headed to Westminster to meet with education minister Elizabeth Truss to discuss proposed changes to childcare in the UK.
It was a brilliant opportunity to share our concerns, ask questions and better understand the government’s hopes with recent changes.
And now we’re at it again.
On March 18, we will be heading back to Westminster to meet with MP Edward Timpson, who is currently leading a Bill through parliament to improve support for children with special education needs and disabilities.
We will be discussing a range of issues, including:
- What the new Children and Families Bill means for families where children have special needs
- What families need from the government to help ensure they, and young people, have their needs met
- What challenges are most important for families, parents and young people dealing with special needs and disabilities
We have a limited number of spaces available, and a small budget to contribute towards travel expenses for Tots100 bloggers.
