Latest Update from Team WarrPAC
Team WarrPAC have had their weekly meeting with TeamWBC and TeamCCG so that we can keep the rest of our membership up to date with local news. There’s an awful lot going on behind the scenes to help keep us all safe and well and make sure that the right support is available at the right time for our families. The WBC website has a Coronavirus page on it to share the latest news. CLICK HERE TO VIEW.
There’s a lot of work going on to liaise with schools within and outside the borough to support the children and young people who need to stay in school / college. There have been mixed messages about access to schools for those with an EHCP – Check out the COUNCIL’S WEBSITE HERE for details. As parents the main message is – Where is my child safest? If a child is safe and secure at home, then that is the best place for them. If the child’s needs are such that they cannot safely be cared for at home, school placements will be maintained wherever possible. If you have any queries regarding your child’s education, contact your school Senco or check out the website link.
Another area of concern reported by our families is that of direct payments – some personal assistants may not be able to undertake their duties, and there are less opportunities to take children out to activities. Like other employees, PA’s pay has been secured, but our families may still need extra support. There is more flexibility in the use of direct payments at the moment, but please reach out to your social / family support worker, or via links on the website, if you’re struggling.
See below for our weekly “Check in and Chat” sessions. We shall still be posting on social media and are welcome to contact us via MESSENGER ON FACEBOOK` or VIA EMAIL.
