The Education Select Committee has been considering the governments Children and Families Bill. It reported back this week.
Linda Lascelles, CEO for AFasic said, “I am reassured that our main concerns have been picked up in this report. Afasic will be working in the coming months to ensure that the Children and Families Bill brings positive change for the children and young people we represent. We are pleased that the Committee recognises the importance of any revised Code of Practice remaining a statutory document.”
Afasic will continue to provide regular updates as the Bill progresses through Parliament in the New Year and would love to hear the views of any parents involved in the local pathfinder programme.
