Southampton Parent Carer Forum
Welcome to Southampton Parent Carer Forum!
In this time of uncertainty and worry, please keep yourselves safe and well. We are still working, and if you have any thoughts on issues affecting you and your family regarding SEN, please do let us know.
We are a friendly group of parent carers who have children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities aged from 0-25 years.
We want to improve our local services, and by coming together as a collective, we can and do make changes.
We are always happy for more people to join us, there’s no charge to join, we are completely free, and we are a relaxed fun group. So if you would like to be part of friendly bunch of people who would like to see SEND changes in Southampton, we would love you to
As a Forum we can support and train parent carers to enable them to have their voices and opinions count, and to 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 to be at the heart of decisions about development and delivery of services in West Berkshire.
The forum represent the views of the collective community and not an individual voice, we are unable to advocate for individual families, but can signpost to specialist services.
