Strengthening Partnerships Workshop Parent/Carers, County Hall, Tuesday, 05. February 2019

DPCV Event 5th February 2019
10.00am – 3pm County Hall, Exeter
 Devon Parent Carer Voice is looking to develop and strengthen a robust and effective partnership between parent carers across Devon and their professional colleagues who commission and provide services and support for disabled children and young people.
As part of this development we are holding an information workshop to unpick and understand the meaning of participation and co-production and how working together can result in more positive outcomes for disabled children, young people and families.
This workshop aims to complement and build on existing opportunities for the voice of parents to be heard at a local strategic level and explore the commitment to this process across sectors involved in the commissioning, design, development and delivery of services for disabled children and their families.
The day is targeted at both practitioners and parent carers and we are keen to encourage attendance from parents who would like to be involved in the development of DPCV on either a strategic or an operational level.
We are keen to reach parents who are already involved in this activity within a specific condition through support or other local groups as well as parents who have never been involved in participation and would like to find out more. We would also like to encourage the attendance of practitioners who are committed to working in partnership with parent carers already and those who would like to understand more about the process and the benefits of and barriers to effective participation.
The workshop aims to:

Explore the different levels of parental involvement and the benefits to both parents and service providers.


Look at the challenges to effective parent participation from both parent and provider perspectives


Consider what best practice looks like and share examples of good practice in involving parents of disabled children in all aspects of service development.


Reflect on the current situation regarding the involvement of local parent carers in Devon


Consider existing structures for parent participation in Devon and the streamlining of current processes to avoid duplication and enable the most effective utilisation of parent time and resources.


Consider       future opportunities to develop strong and effective partnerships and move toward a future of co-production
