Working with families

We pride ourselves on the excellent relationships we build with parents, carers and professionals in delivering outstanding outcomes and positive experiences for the children and young people in our care.

Our Family Services team supports families throughout their  journey with Seashell, from initial enquiry right through to planning for the long-term future. Family link workers are  on hand to guide people through any support, information and advice needed.  Working closely with families, Seashell staff, schools, colleges, local authorities and clinical commission groups (CCGs) we offer support every step of the way.

Empowering parent carers

We provide opportunities for people to have their say about the services at Seashell and beyond through  the local parent carer forum, Parents and Carers Together Stockport – a  group of parents and carers of disabled children work with local authorities and other settings to make sure the services they plan and deliver meet the needs of disabled children and their families. 

Many of the events that Seashell offers to families are delivered in partnership with Parents and Carers Together Stockport.

Seashell also works closely with Stockport Action Youth Speakers (SAYS), offering a place for young people with additional needs and disabilities, to have their voice heard in a safe, friendly place and to shape services for future generations.
