North Somerset Council wants parents' views.


The views of parents and carers of children with special educational needs (SEN) are being sought.

North Somerset Council wants feedback about its short breaks service, which offers children with SEN the chance to spend time away from home or respite for parents.

Cllr Jan Barber, executive member for children’s services, said: “This offers everyone the chance to have their say on the short breaks offer, a service which is incredibly important to those families who use it.”

The consultation is available online, and a drop-in session will be held at Weston’s Firs Resource Centre, in Drove Road, on November 27 from 10am to noon.

Kingsmour Playground, in Kingston Seymour will host sessions on Tuesday from 11am-2pm and from 1.30-4pm on November 1.
