ROUND UP: Take part in Special Education Needs survey; Volunteer to visit a child in care

Take part in Special Education Needs survey

Families using Surrey’s Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) services are being asked to take part in a national survey.

The survey, which is supported by the Department for Education, is being sent out by Surrey County Council on behalf of Lancaster University and the charity In Control.

Parents and children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) can share their views by filling in the relevant survey on Surrey’s SEND Local Offer website.

Volunteer to visit a child in care

Surrey Independent Visitor Service is looking for men and women volunteers to regularly visit and make friends with a child in care.

The service, run by Surrey County Council, organises regular visitors for children and young people aged 10 to 17 who are in care.

Volunteers will get the chance to attend a free two-day introductory training course and will be matched with a child who shares similar interests.

Would-be volunteers can find out how to become an independent visitor at an open evening being held in Redhill on Tuesday 20 October from 7-8.30pm.
