Special Needs Action Panel – SNAP
SNAP PCF is a pro-active group of Central Bedfordshire parents who all have children or young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) between the ages of 0-25 years. We work with education, health, children and adult social care as well as other organisations to help influence and improve local services that are provided for our children and young people, to ensure that they meet the needs of all disabled children and their families in the county.
As parent carers, we bring a real-life perspective and experience to the planning and development of the services that our families use. By continuously working with Central Bedfordshire Council and ‘co-producing’ any change, parent carers are much more successful at securing the changes that are needed to benefit all children and young people living with SEND in the county. Successful co-production ensures that Central Bedfordshire Council and The Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group can be confident from the outset that the services that they are designing or providing reflect what local families actually want and need.
