- The Family Leadership Programme is made up of 6 modules and each one will be delivered over 2 hours, by people with first-hand knowledge of the themes. The first one will be delivered on the 3rd November 2021.
- Following Focus Groups, Listening Events and feedback from parent carer groups and schools, it has been identified that there is a lack of awareness and understanding about the support and options in Bradford.
- The aim of the programme is to address common themes, ensuring that parents/carers and professionals are well informed about opportunities and support networks that are available in Bradford. As well as promoting the importance of planning for adulthood as early as possible (Year 9 at the latest).
- The modules have been CoProduced by the following:
- SEND Transformation & Compliance Team
- SEND Integrated Assessment Team
- Social Care (Preparation for Adulthood Team & Commissioning Team)
- Health (Complex and Continuing Physical healthcare transitions team, & Wadiloves)
