WCB welcomes continuation of SenCom service

Newport City Council has agreed to extend the Gwent SenCom service for children with sensory loss until at least 2022. The decision has been welcomed by parents, Wales Council of the Blind and other sight loss charities. Owen Williams, WCB's Director, issued the following statement:

'The sight loss sector in Wales has campaigned as a single voice against Newport’s decision to withdraw from SenCom. We are delighted that the Gwent authorities have decided to commit jointly to the continuation of the best practice SenCom regional service, until 2022.

'We will await the terms and conditions of the review and would like to see any review led by an impartial chair with no pre-determined agenda. We would like to see the chair have knowledge of SenCom and the invaluable services and support that they provide to children and young people across Gwent.

'We also hope that any review will enable proper consultation this time, so that children and their families and carers can make a meaningful contribution to the design of a specialist service that best meets their needs'.

You can read a report on the decision on the BBC website.
