The Department for Education funds Contact who are a national charity to administer our grant, Central Bedfordshire Council and the BMLK Clinical Commissioning Group also fund our forum.

The SEND Implementation Grant is given to the Local Authority to support the implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014. This grant pays the forum for a Participation Manager and a Business Support Administrator. This funding demonstrates the commitment of the Local Authority to hear the voice of the parent carer when planning and implementing services.
