Stockport Council proposed budget cuts may well hurt children and young people with SEND and their families
Stockport Council is proposing £47m of cuts to budgets from April 2019, which may reduce services and support for children and young people with SEND and their families. PIPS has written this letter of concern to the council. We encourage families to visit the consultation website at: https://consultation.stockport.gov.uk before 25th January and give their views on the proposed cuts. Or you can write to the Council Leader, Alex Ganotis, at: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your local councillor. You can use some of the PIPS letter if you wish. Please let us know what answers you get by contacting email@example.com and heading your email "Budget Cuts".

ABOUT PIPS STOCKPORT
PIPS is Stockport’s official local parent carer forum run by parents for parents, carers, grandparents and family members who have a child/young person between the ages of 0 & 25 years with special educational needs & disabilities including any additional need. PIPS was founded in 2008 through Department for Education funding “Aiming high Short Breaks Agenda”.
We work in co-production with the Stockport’s Education, Health & Social Care, Providers and local support groups to ensure the collective voice of parents and carers are heard during the design, development, delivery and review of services to ensure best outcomes for children and young people and their families.
PIPS offers an opportunity for families to come together, receive the latest training, share information, experiences and to provide support to each other.
"Our mission is to bring about positive change for families of children and young people with any additional needs or disabilities. We achieve this by empowering parent carers in effective participation to shape services and provide information and support."
