SUN is a networking group looking at issues affecting children and young people with special educational needs and their families.
The network provides an opportunity for parents, carers, voluntary groups and agencies -such as education, social care and health - to get together and help to make a real difference to the quality of services and people's lives in the community.
- look at good practice
- look at what parents really want or need
- provide a forum for consultation
- help professionals and parents exchange information
- provide agencies with a better understanding of children with additional needs and their families
The SUN network groups have been rolled out across Staffordshire. Current active network groups are Cannock and Lichfield, South Staffordshire (Wombourne, Perton, Codsall area), Central Staffordshire, East Staffordshire and North Staffordshire. A county get together is organised annually. Please check the website for forthcoming dates. We would be delighted to see you at the meetings.

Can you spare a minute …
During the Autumn Term 2015 SUN meetings, we will hear about the latest assistive technology, and how technological advances, gadgets and gizmos could help you and your family. As there is so much out there, it would be really helpful if you could let us know what you are particularly interested in. We can then tailor the session around what you would like to see. If you can spare a minute, please click on the attached link, https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z2N3TYD and complete the short survey, or complete the Assistive Technology Questionnaire (364 KB)
If you would be interested in joining the network, receiving SUN e-Snippets, attending an event or would just like further information, then please contact the SUN Co-ordinator, Marie Wood on 01785 356921 or email Marie at email@example.com
