Family Voice Calderdale is an independent voluntary organisation of parents of children and young people with any additional need.

The one-day event allows parents to go along and share their stories of home education.

People can share as much or as little as they want and can remain anonymous.

The stories will help Family Voice Calderdale to play a part in shaping services in Calderdale so it meets the needs of all children and young people.
