About Parent Carer Forums:

Parent Carer Forums (PCFs) are grassroots organisations that bring together Parent Carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).  These forums provide a collective voice for families, offering a platform to share experiences, concerns, and insights related to the challenges of caring for children with additional needs.

At the heart of Parent Carer Forums is a commitment to empowering families and ensuring their voices are heard in decision-making that impacts their lives. Forums collaborate with local authorities, health services, and other stakeholders to influence policies, services, and provisions for children and young people with SEND.

By fostering a supportive community, Parent Carer Forums aim to create positive change, improve access to resources, and enhance the overall well-being of families navigating the complexities of caring for children with additional needs.
