Join us on the Monday 28thJune for the first in our series of SEND workshops with Alison Wombell from Chasing Rainbows and I Am Her Voice, our autism journey,  Autism, Behaviour and Communication.


Alison’s blog is the popular I Am Her Voice – our autism journey is really popular with families and can be found via Facebook and Instagram. The blog follows Alison’s daily life of being a mum to two girls with Autism and other complex needs which include ADHD, Tic Disorder, A Chromosome Deletion Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder. In 2019 Alison also received a diagnosis of Autism and ADHD, at thirty four years of age. Chasing Rainbows was established in 2019 as a support and training service helping to support families, children, adults and professionals through support, consultancy/ coaching and training. The workshop will be held at SENSES CIC, Skelton and free tickets available via EventBrite. Attendees can webcast the workshop if they would prefer.

Come and join SEND Family Voice for a Walk and Talk in the beautiful surroundings of Guisborough Forest every Sunday during term time from 9:30 – 11:00


We’re a welcoming, non-judgemental and friendly group ran by parent carers for parent carers. For those new to the Branch Walkway there’s a cafe, parking is £2 and the route we will walk is mainly on the flat. We want the walk and talk to be about taking time for self-care as adults so for the time being we would like children to stay at home. We meet in the car park.


If there’s demand we will look at doing a family walk and picnic in the summer holidays.


Meet the Steering Group and see how we can support your family.

Stay and Play with your little ones and join us for a morning celebrating the re-launch of Redcar and Cleveland’s Parent Carer Forum – SEND Family Voice.

Held at the (accessible for all venue) SENSES Wellbeing Centre, Skelton.

There will be a friendly accommodating environment for SEND families new and old and carers with children of all special educational needs and or disabilities from 0-25 undiagnosed or diagnosed.

Come along, share some tea, cake and empathy and most importantly make friends with understanding families who are on a similar journey to you.

SEND Family Voice Relaunch Party!

21st June 2021 – 10am – 12pm


With support from DfE, Independent Support has produced two short animation films, which can be used by local authorities, front line services, professionals and parent groups in their communications with parents and young people. The purpose of the animations is to help explain the EHCP process and its important relationship with the Person Centred Connection.
