SEND co-production in Herefordshire

Our equality in decision making

Parent Carer Voice Herefordshire, Herefordshire Council, and Herefordshire and Worcestershire Integrated Care System co-production tree

Along with our partners we have produced a co-production charter that sets out a working agreement and commitment to co-production of services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in the county.

Co-production is when parent carer forums play an essential and equal part in the decision-making process and are fully engaged in shaping, developing, implementing and evaluating services and systems.

Herefordshire's parent carer forum is Parent Carer Voice (PCV) Herefordshire, which is led by a steering group of parents who listen to and take forward the views and ideas of their members. PCV Herefordshire work in partnership with Herefordshire Council and Herefordshire Integrated Care System (ICS) to make sure children and young people aged 0 – 25 years old with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and their families, have their needs met.

Our partners for the charter have included PCV Herefordshire, Herefordshire Council, Herefordshire Integrated Care System (ICS), Herefordshire and Worcestershire NHS Trust, Wye Valley NHS Trust and SENDIASS.

Wherever you see the co-production tree logo, it means that the event, training or document was created in a co-productive way with PCV Herefordshire, Herefordshire Council, the ICS and other relevant partners.

You can find out more about Herefordshire's co-production journey on the PCV Herefordshire co-production page.
