Dear all,

During the locality stakeholder meetings in September and early November a number of parents expressed interest in being involved in a Short Breaks tender panel, therefore we have arranged a parent training session in the morning of the 25th November at the Roundthorn Hotel, Penrith from 10 am ? 12 noon followed by lunch.  We have 20 places booked, so can accommodate 4 parents from each locality.  As mentioned at the events we aim to have one parent/carer from each locality on the tender panel and 4 Local Authority officers, representing the full 0-19 age range and a range of disabilities.  We cannot have a panel with parents/carers representing one age range across one or two localities and one disability, so that we can make fair and consensual decisions based on needs not on individual children in specific localities.

Please forward expressions of interest to attend this training session to <mailto:sarah.stephenson@cumbriacc.gov.uk>sarah.stephenson@cumbriacc.gov.uk

Nicola, Steph and Shirley could you please forward this email onto parents in your localities who are not included in this mailing? Places will be limited, but we will get a response to parents/carers as soon as possible.

Kind regards
