The Hull and East Riding SEND Sleep Service

Summary:

Children and young people with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) are far more likely than their peers to have sleep difficulties. These may include difficulty getting to sleep, waking frequently throughout the night or waking early in the morning.

The Hull and East Riding SEND Sleep Service aims to support the child or young person to sleep better with a range of methods individualised to each particular family.

Support is provided by trained Sleep Practitioners through a range of methods, including workshops and drop-ins, support in the family home, support in the child’s school, and telephone and email support.

East Yorkshire Parent Carer Forum (EYPCF)

Summary:

East Yorkshire Parent Carer Forum (EYPCF) is for the parents and carers of children and young people (0-25 years) who have any special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) and live in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

We are part of a Regional and National network and represent the views of parents to improve local services for families who care for children and young people with SEND

EYPCF is an independent organisation and we believe that by working together we have more strength to raise awareness of our children’s needs.

The aim of the group is to try to ensure that parents and carers are involved in shaping services within the East Riding of Yorkshire that may impact on their children. We have a broad membership of parent carers.

A smaller group of voluntary representatives form a steering group who organise and plan events and attend meetings on behalf of the forum. Everybody on the steering group has direct experience of children with SEND.

The forum represents the views of parents in the local area but does not advocate for individual families.

We hold regular events for parents and carers across the East Riding of Yorkshire and gather information about what works well, and encourage parents and carers to share any issues they may have. This feedback is then shared with the relevant groups.
