We aim to work together as strategic partners with our local authority Nottingham City, as equal members, participating and influencing local decision making on services for our children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities plus their families. We achieve this by supporting a team of parent representatives who attend various Work Streams on behalf of our network that the local authority has as part of the implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014 reforms.
