Why your views are important

BFfC would like to understand the opportunities and issues on a number of proposals for different ways that the Short Break Services could be provided, from the providers prospective. The proposals for change seek to continue to deliver an effective programme that provides good quality breaks for parents and carers of SEND children, and also provides fun and educational opportunities for the children and young people receiving them. It is important to BFfC that the views of all stakeholder, including providers, are carefully considered.
