The steering group is made up from representatives from a variety of organisations that support children and families with special educational needs or disabilities as well as independent parents. This is to ensure the representation is wide and to ensure that existing networks are sharing the work of the forum.
There are currently 26 members on the steering group, which is quite large but this makes sure that parents whose lives at times can be complicated do not feel overwhelmed and that there are enough parents to be quorate and make decisions.
It is the steering groups job to decide what issues parents are collectively facing that they would like to pursue at a strategic level to influence and work with professionals to find positive solutions.
Steering group meetings are closed meetings but minutes are published below.
