Northumberland Parent Carer Forum, In It Together, is working with Northumberland County Council to raise awareness of local services and support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families.


Over 30 services are taking part in the roadshows including NHS, social care, Northumberland County Council’s disabled children's team, education and training providers, and voluntary organisations. 

The roadshows are drop in events so there is no need to book. They will take place from 10am to 4pm on; 

  • Thursday 20 September at Hexham Mart, Tyne Green Hexham, NE46 3SG
  • Monday 1 October at Ashington Hirst Welfare Centre, Alexandra Road, Ashington, NE63 9HN

Roadshows will include a range of information, advice and support that families children and young people aged 0 -25 with (SEND) would find useful. 

There will also be information about opportunities in education, supported employment, leisure, as well as information about specific conditions such as Autism and Dyslexia.
