October 23, 2015

The NNPCF Steering Group met on Thursday 15th October 2015. Below we have noted some of the key headlines:

1. Conference Round Up

Burning issues from the Conference were categorised. Each Steering Group member was asked to take a category and review the issues. A full report will be shared with forums and the Department for Education. A conference report is also being prepared to summarise the day. The Steering Group looked at the responses so far to the 3 questions asked in the afternoon session (please see below). This will be added to the review of the NNPCF structure.

Forums who did not attend the Conference are reminded to submit their response through to by 17:00 on Friday 20th November 2015.

3. Contact a Family Health Project Update

An update on the Contact a Family Health Project and Report was provided by the NNPCF Steering Group members, who sit on the Complex Health Needs Implementation Board. It was agreed that the group would prepare an urgent response to NHS England CHNIB for consideration when looking at priorities to support SEND reforms.
