REACH Wokingham are looking for new parent carers to join the steering committee. We meet once a month (except August) for a couple of hours in the evening to discuss issues and how we might progress these with the relevant authorities. We attend meetings with Wokingham Borough Council and the NHS to represent parents views (we will train and support you to do this). We also organise events such as the Local Offer Live and run consultation on issues such as Short Breaks, School Transport and SEND Services in the Local Area.
Any nominations for the committee, including Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, must be made to the REACH Wokingham Secretary by Wednesday 27th February 2019.
