Independant Advice and Support Programme – Contract announcement

May 10, 2018

The Council for Disabled Children and Contact will be working in partnership for the next two years to deliver the Independent Advice and Support Programme on behalf of the Department for Education. The NNPCF are a member of the Independent Support advisory board and we are pleased that parent carers will continue to have a voice in shaping this new combined service providing statutory advice and support to individual parent carers, children and young people going forward. The contract requires the merging of IAS and Independent Support services over the coming period and the NNPCF will work with the Council for Disabled Children and others to coproduce new services.
