Frequently Asked Questions

Being parents of children with a range of additional needs and disabilities we, at Essex Family Forum, understand that this is a particularly stressful and unsettling time for our children and young people and ourselves.   As the independent Parent Carer Forum for Essex, we are in unique position to put your queries and concerns to Essex County Council (ECC) and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) during our regular communications with them and our attendance at twice weekly “virtual” meetings with key senior officers. Teams at ECC and the CCGs are working together to develop a plan for all children and young people while they are not in school.


We have already tabled a number of questions and can outline below those that have been answered to date, and will continue to update this section as we know more:

If you have any questions or concerns you’d like answered, please email us at:  or contact us via our Facebook page
