Welcome!

We work across the whole range of services including health, education, social care, and alongside our voluntary sector partners - at a local, regional and national level. We are also members of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums.

Parent Carer Participation is when parents and professionals work together, recognising each other's knowledge, to make informed decisions about services that make the best use of resources.

We are funded through the BIG Lottery Reaching Communities grant and through a Participation Grant from the Department for Education.
