Description

The Sheffield Parent Carer Forum is an independent group of parents and carers of children and young people (0-25) with disabilities and/or special educational needs.

Our main aim is to ensure the needs of our children are met.

We support families with disabled children by:

  • Organising information events and training sessions for parents
  • Organising social events where families can meet each other
  • Gathering parents’ views and representing them at a strategic level
  • Providing training to raise awareness of the issues faced by families with disabled children
