Last week, we mentioned the growing popularity of our series of thematic SEN meetings (via Zoom). This week has seen a Cultural SEN meeting on Wednesday; a joint thematic SEN meeting is scheduled for this afternoon (over 30 participants) between 2-3pm; and the Employability SEN meets on Wed, 29th April (12.30 -1.30 pm). If you’d like to participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . As well as offering important peer-to-peer support at this time; these meetings – as well as the various local SEN meetings – are providing important feedback on the issues facing SEN members in responding to the current crisis – and also in beginning to frame actions that will be needed in the future as the sector looks towards its longer term recovery. With most of Scottish Govt’s main funding streams now ‘live’, our focus over the coming weeks will be very much on sector requirements in the year ahead – what will be the needs of frontline social enterprises; how current resourcing of the sector may need to be revised; and what services the national support agencies should be providing to the sector. We will continue to feed this information to Scottish Govt as they consider their approach in the months ahead. For all the latest info on funding, support etc, we refer you to our own Resources Page – and well, of course, as SCVO’s Third Sector Information Hub.
