Virtual Meetings

Our first virtual meeting takes place on Wednesday, 20th May 2020 at 1pm using Microsoft Teams.  If you would like to join us, please contact Liz Wright at liz.wright@cumbria.gov.uk or on: 07825 340 475


What is it for?

The All of Us groups are to give young people a chance to tell us what is happening in their education and whether it is meeting their needs, we want to hear what is going well as well as what they would like to change.The work they are doing also fits into the SEND improvement plan as any work undertaken by the groups is  reported at the improvement plan working group ‘Co-production and Engagement’.  Young people’s views will be seriously considered in any service development.
