Who are we?

Do you have a child or young person with additional needs or disability?

Your child doesn’t need a diagnosis for you to seek our help or attend one of our sessions, they may be in the pipeline, on the waiting list, accessing services, or have had a referral turned down! We work to make sure you get the services you need in a way that works for you by feeding back to those who are responsible for them.

Who are we?

We are Pinpoint, your local Parent/Carer Forum and hub for information,
signposting and events for all things SEND. We offer free signposting, information, professionals support workshops and events.

Where can you find us?

We work across Cambridgeshire linking parent/carers to the right professionals. We visit Ely, Histon, Chatteris, Wisbech, Whittlesey, East Cambs, Littleport, Bottisham and Huntingdon. And we also pop up at other events across the county.

What do we do?

We offer practical face-to-face sessions with visiting speakers and specialists who will be able to help you. They can help you on how to help your child or young person in the form of parent carer groups, workshops, and hubs. We specialise in signposting to relevant organisations. We hold coffee mornings (Tii) hubs where you will always find a friendly face to chat to and have the opportunity to meet with other parent/carers in similar situations. We offer practical ideas and information to help you and your child at our free drop in session across Cambridgeshire.

Cambridgeshire Parent Power - make things happen!

Our parents say ...

Your views matter: it’s the law

YOU are the expert on your child or young person and know best what works for  them and what doesn’t. 

Whether you want more help at school for your son or daughter, an EHC plan for your own child or want to improve specific county-wide services such as wheelchair, sensory support or continence or are concerned about  issues such as bullying, transport or mental health, your views and experience really are important.

Cambridgeshire care providers need your involvement in designing, developing and planning services for children and young people. And the 2014 SEND reforms make it clear that children with additional needs and disabilities and their families are equal partners in services and in deciding what should be provided.

You need good information to make informed decisions. And should be asked what matters to you and be listened to.

Pinpoint’s here to support you by

  • making sure you have the information you need
  • finding ways to ways to involve you
  • empowering you to take control

Everyone's talking about co-production - what is it?

When parents and professionals work together as equal partners it is called ‘co-production’.

It allows people with different views and ideas to come together to make things better for everyone.

Co-production is about people who use services, their carers, and people who run services working together as equals.
