We are a group of Parents and Carers who have children and young people with various disabilities. We have joined together so that we can provide a united voice that local services are encouraged to listen to when making decisions regarding our children’s education, learning and future needs. We were formed in January 2010 and we encourage any parent to engage with the Forum regarding their child or young person regardless of their disabilities, these may range from complex medical needs to challenging behaviour, learning or physical difficulties.
Our steering group meets four times a year and consists of Parents, Carers and Professionals, so together we have a stronger voice that can work towards improving the lives of families, children and young people with disabilities. We can achieve this by putting forward your concerns and issues to relevant key policy makers and service providers.
“Having the speakers who have ASD diagnosis is really an eyeopener to what could be achieved by our young people.”
