iMPOWER’s Heroes of Christmas: 14 December

Our alternative advent calendar celebrates the people or teams who have inspired us this year.

Elaine is passionate about enabling children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) to achieve their potential. She works tirelessly to lead Dorset Parent Carer Council, constructively challenging both the Council and parent carers to raise their aspirations of what children and young people with SEND can achieve. Elaine does this so effectively because she always keeps a child’s best interests at heart and at the centre of conversations. Her wide engagement with parent carers has ensured that a variety of views are represented, and the productive two-way conversations between the Council and Parent Carer Council that she has enabled have helped bring about concrete improvements to services. It is impossible not to be inspired by Elaine’s determination and commitment.
