SNAP Parent Carer Forum is a pro-active group of parent carers who all have children or young people with Special Education Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). We have come together as a group of parent carers to work with other individuals and organisations to help influence and improve the local services that are provided for our children and young people within Central Bedfordshire. We focus on helping to raise the standard of social care, education and health services within the county, to ensure that these services are provided in a way that meets the needs of children and young people and their families.  Website: http://www.snappcf.org.uk/
