Council SEND Engagement Sessions

Review of South Gloucestershire’s Resource Bases and Access Centres

The Local Authority have undertaken a review of all Resource Bases and Access Centres across South Gloucestershire. The report from this review was presented to the Schools Forum on 18 July 2019.

The Local Authority are running some public engagement events to ensure that they capture the voices and views of children and young people; their families and other key stakeholders. They want to hear from you before a formal public consultation takes place, to make sure they incorporate a wide range of ideas into the process.

Currently there are 3 events with another event being planned in the north of South Gloucestershire. All families who currently have a child at a resource base will have had an invite from the council through their school. However it is important that the wider views of the community of Parents and Carers are captured as well. If you wish to attend please book on the relevant engagement events booking lines below.

Please note these engagements events are not organised by the Parent Carers forum however if you have any comments you wish us to feedback you can contact us. (Email
