The Minister of Children and Families, Edward Timpson MP, is coming to Grantham as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of a parent carers charity.

Mr Timpson will open the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum’s (LPCF) event in the Guildhall Arts Centre on Thursday, February 4. He will be joined by Sheridan Dodsworth, Lincolnshire County Council’s head of special educational needs and disability (SEND), as well as LCC’s adult services and public health directors, Glen Garrod and Tony Hill respectively.

They will be speaking at the event, as will the Mayor of Grantham Jacky Smith. The celebrations will include a two course buffet lunch, and the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum are asking parent carers in the area to get in touch for a chance to attend the event for free.

Doors will open to those with invitations from 10.15am for a 10.30am start, with it scheduled to finish at 2.30pm.

After the speeches and lunch, there will be the opportunity to speak to various attending organisations, all with information relating to SEND. Concessionary parking has been arranged for this event between LPCF and South Kesteven District Council.

Chair of LPCF, Therese Lord, said: “I am over the moon that the Minister of Children and Families, Lincolnshire County Council representatives and the Mayor of Grantham are attending this event. It is a great way to mark ten years of helping parent carers and their families in Lincolnshire. We hope to see lots of these families at the event in Grantham’s Guildhall.”

Parent carers can contact LPCF for an invitation via their website www.lincspcf.org.uk

Mr Timpson will also be visiting Cliffedale Primary School in Grantham after the event.
