Past Events

The overall aim of the PlaNet Event held at Llancaiach Fawr in December, was for parents to have their voices heard.

We were able to share information about the development process of:
- the Single Integrated Plan
- to celebrate and share the work of the Youth Forum
- and to hold interactive workshops that would give delegates the opportunity to find out more about services and have their say in shaping them. It was also an opportunity for parents to share ideas, to offer support to each other and to have the opportunity to contribute to the development of services as one parent put it ‘have the service developed with us instead of for us and to us!’
