Rachael Wardell FB live 5th November 2021
In August, FVS invited Rachael Wardell (Director for Children’s Services at Surrey County Council) to introduce herself and her role to parent carers in Surrey. We had collected questions from you that we took as a starting point of the conversation. It quickly became clear that a much longer and ongoing dialogue was needed and we have been working to make that happen.
The focus of many questions was the EHCP process and in particular the appeals process, with many parents concerned at the percentage of tribunals found in parent’s favour – which suggested an urgent need for improved practice by the council.
Today, Rachael joined us once more, having undertaken some considerable exploration of the data available and what it might mean.
We invite you to join our FB group https://www.facebook.com/groups/FVSurrey to watch the video if you have not yet had the chance to do so. We also invite you to join our membership for access to such conversations and other events https://www.familyvoicesurrey.org/become-a-member.
