Support our campaign for children with migraine in Parliament

The Migraine Trust is supporting the Safe in School campaign as part of our work as a member of the Health Conditions in Schools Alliance

The Migraine Trust is supporting the Safe in School campaign as part of our work as a member of the Health Conditions in Schools Alliance. The alliance is calling on the Government to take action to ensure that schools in England are aware of their duty to have a medical conditions policy in place and are effectively implementing it. This is required by law so that children can get the care and support they need in school – children with conditions such as migraine, asthma, epilepsy, ME and Type 1 diabetes.

Meeting in Parliament

Parliamentarians from the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Diabetes have called a briefing meeting on ‘Safety and Inclusion of Children with Medical Conditions at School’. The meeting will take place on Wednesday 1 March 2017 from 5-6:30pm in the House of Commons.

Can you help as a case study?

The APPG has put out a call for evidence for case studies from parents, schools and healthcare professionals of the challenges faced by children with medical conditions in schools. The APPG meeting and are looking for parents and/or young people to speak about their experience as well as invite their MP along to attend. The deadline for submitting case studies and written evidence is midnight on Sunday 26 February. More details about the event and how to submit a case study are available here.

The meeting will focus on the provision of support for children up to the age of 16 as it is related to the statutory guidance for schools for this age group. Due to limits on room capacity, please note that admittance will be on a first come, first served basis and one organisation, one person basis.  The Migraine Trust will be supporting the event and we hope to see you there if you can make it. If you would like to attend the event please email the APPG.
