Parent Carer Forum

Empower and enable your voices to be heard

Welcome to Southampton Parent Carer Forum

We are a friendly group of parent carers who have children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities aged 0-25 years. We support and train parent carers to enable them to have input and be involved with shaping services alongside the professionals who provide health, education, adult and social services. Our shared mission is to improve and enhance the experiences and opportunities of children and young people with additional needs by enabling parents and carers to be heard and be at the heart of decisions about development and delivery of services in Southampton. The forum will represent the views of the collective community and not an individual voice. The role of the forum is not to advocate for individual families and will signpost to specialist services.

PTSA Inclusion Conference 2019

11th JanuaryΒ 

We were delighted to be invited to present at the PTSA Inclusion Conference last week.Β  The conference is aimed at Education, Local Authority and Health staff in the local area.Β  Myself and one of our Steering Group (Gill Waring) presented a workshop about the forum, what we do and how we feel about inclusion for our children and young people.

It was a truly fantastic day, great turnout and we were very fortunate to meet and talk to Chris Packham and his beloved Scratchy, after his amazing keynote speech.

One for the wall we think πŸ™‚
