Full description

A parent carer forum is a group of parents and carers of disabled children who work with local authorities, education, health and other providers to make sure the services they plan and deliver meet the needs of disabled children and families.

In England there are parent carer forums in almost all local authority areas.

Forums usually have a steering group of parents who lead this work and listen to the views of other parents in the local area to make sure they know what is important to them. Forums are keen to hear from as many parent carers as possible.

Who can join a parent carer forum?
Parents or carers of a child with any type of additional need or disability are welcome to join.  Joining your forum does not mean you have to commit lots of time. In most forums you can join and receive information, and then decide if you want to get more involved at your own pace.

Read parent stories, where parents explain why they got involved and what it involved: http://www.cafamily.org.uk/advice-and-support/resource-library/?k=participation+parent+story 

The forum represents the views of parents in the local area but does not advocate for individual families.
