Throughout their lives disabled children may need help from a range of services – health, education, social care or social work. As a parent you know your child best. It is important you know how you can help shape these services to meet their needs. There are now many ways that national and local government, health boards, local authorities and other organisations try to involve service users in the planning and development of the law, guidance and services.
The Parent Participation Project has published a booklet to explains some of the ways you, as a parent, can get involved. It’s called Shaping the Services You Use and can be downloaded by clicking on this link: Shaping the Services You Use.
