WPCC’s Response to the National Consultation on the SEND and Alternative Provision Green Paper


The Wiltshire Parent Carer Council would like to say a massive thank you to all of the parent carers who so generously gave their time to contribute to the sessions we ran during June and July (including those who were unable to attend but submitted feedback additionally), to help us compile a combined response to the SEND and Alternative Provision Green Paper on behalf of Wiltshire Parent Carers.

The parent carers who attended our sessions said they were grateful to have the main points of the review broken down into a language that was easier to understand. Many said the government consultation document was overwhelming and our face to face sessions had given them an important chance to give their feedback.

The second part of our sessions took the format of an ‘unconference’; each group of parent carers chose the topics that were of the most importance for them to discuss further and lead their own conversations. We really enjoyed hearing what you had to say and seeing how you all worked together on the various discussion topics.

Please click [HERE] to see the report of the collective discussions and contributions from our parent carers; this is what we submitted to the national consultation.

We have received a response acknowledging our submission to the contribution which says: “Thank you for your email and for taking the time to respond to the consultation, we really appreciate this. Please be assured that your feedback will be included in the consultation.”.

Later this year, following the completion of the consultation, the Government will publish a national SEND delivery plan, setting out their response to the consultation and how the proposals will be implemented. As always, the WPCC will update as we receive further information.
