I went on to a hugely impressive event organised and managed by Sue Knights, Sue Williamson and Ian Falkingham on behalf of the NW SILC Parents Forum...

The City wide Market Place Event at the Civic hall brought together colleagues from agencies and the voluntary and community sector who work with children with special and additional needs. It was officailly opened by the Lord Mayor, Cllr Brain Cleasby and it enabled parents and carers to see the range of support available to them:
  • Aiming High for Diabled Children
  • Choice Advice Service;
  • Early Years SILC;
  • Parent Partnership Service;
  • Early Years Service;
  • Inclusion Support Team;
  • Leeds Play Network;
  • Deaf and Hearing Impaired Team;
  • Visually Impaired Team;
  • Community Paediatric Audiology Service;
  • Leeds PCT Learning Disabilities Service;
  • martin House;
  • Leeds University Student Action Group;
  • Wilf Ward;
  • Children's Social Care Services;
  • Herd Farm;

  • Snaps;
  • The Hub;
  • Disability Benefits Team;

  • association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus;
  • Hawthorn Family support Centre;
  • Cerebral Palsy Sport;

I know that I will have missed some of those who were there and if you missed it you missed something really special. I hope that we can make it an annual event!
