From SEN to ALN: Parent and Carer Forums

SNAP Cymru are running a series of free parent and carer forums for families of children with ALN/Disabilities aged 0-25 across Wales starting this month and running until April 2023.

The sessions offer parents and carers the chance to

· Find out more about the implementation of the ALN system in Wales

· Share their views and experiences

· Access support and advice from the SNAP Cymru team

Feedback from the sessions will help Welsh Government to develop future resources and support for families.

The forums will run online and in person, in various locations across Wales.
