Welcome to Special Voices (Slough parent/carer forum)
Special Voices is a group of parent/carers of children, young people & adults with disabilities/additional needs & is the parent/carer forum for Slough. We are all volunteers working in partnership with the Slough Children’s Services Trust, Local Authority, CCG’s and voluntary organisations to help shape and develop future services in Slough through participation and co-production with all your views & experiences that you share with us, without you we couldn’t change things for all children/young people/adults in Slough.
Our mission is to raise awareness about the rights and needs of children/young people/adults with additional needs and to ensure that they and their families are consulted and participate in any decisions made during the planning and delivery of services for all our additional needs children/young people & adults.

This will be a very simple & short interactive session using our post it notes system where all family members can take part. This will then be used anonymously in the future planning and delivery of those services here in Slough that our children, young people & adults use.
