Latest engagement findings from HWCWL: speaking to parents of children with SEND in Westminster about the impact of COVID-19

Healthwatch Central West London (HWCWL) is delighted to share our latest findings from our COVID-19 engagement in Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been working with the recipients of our Small Grant to conduct discussion groups with under-represented communities in Central West London.

Our first report from these sessions comes thanks to Make it Happen, a support group for parents of children with disabilities and complex needs, which works to improve services in Westminster. They joined us for a discussion group in May 2020, to share their experiences of, and concerns about, the COVID-19 response.

Their insights are a valuable contribution to our ongoing engagement, highlighting the challenges of COVID-19 and the response from public services in the context of having a child with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
