Covid 19 update
Due to Coronavirus we are currently unable to hold face to face meetings. We are available by phone/email/text and can attend virtual meetings.
Life can be challenging as a parent/carer and you might wish to meet tor talk to other people in a similar situation.
Local Parent Carer Forums are a representative local group of parents and carers of children with special educational needs and/or 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.
