Spcf are holding a parent carer conference on Monday 11th March.

As part of this conference we are having our inaugural SEND Awards.

Often the conversation around SEND is negative, we would like to celebrate some of the positive experiences.

We are asking our parent carers to nominate those people or settings that have had a positive impact on their life.

Please click the link or below to put forward your nominations, or use the QR Code.

Nominations close on 16th February.

If you wish to nominate more than one person or setting in a single category then please do a separate form. There are 10 categories and you do not have to nominate for each one, although you are welcome to do so.
