 Welcome to Parent Carer Foundation

Welcome to our new website. Parent Carer Foundation was formerly known as Bournemouth Parent Carer Forum. 

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 Foundation 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.”

Thank you to Parent/Carer Foundation for all their help and information they gave me in signposting me to the school nurse and Speech therapist to get my son the help he needed at school.”
