We are also looking for peer-to-peer content for the Stoke on Trent Local Offer. We think that messages are more powerful if they are from parent to parent or school to school. And we think that content for the Local Offer should be produced locally.
We want you to get in touch if you are
- a child or a young person who wants to share what has worked for you;
- a parent with advice for other parents;
- a school that would like to share good practice with other schools;
- a school that would like to add a virtual tour to the Local Offer;
- an educational professional who can explain how to access services;
- a support group who wants to reach out to new members.
We want constructive content that will help and support children and young people with special educational needs and/ or disabilities and their families.
We are particularly looking for video content and now have a film maker who could record your contribution.
We are waiting to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send us a couple of sentences saying what you would like to contribute and we will get back to you.
