We need you to help us build Warwickshire Parent Carer Voice into an organisation that can make a difference in shaping co-produced services taking into account the needs and preferences of parent carers of children and young people with SEND.

Links & Support

Help us build this into the ultimate signposting resource so that all the parent carers in Warwickshire can find all the information they need quickly.

WPCV is an independent, parent carer led organisation for everyone with a child or children with special educational needs and/or disabilities aged 0 -25.

We make sure that parent carer voices are heard and acted upon. By working with Education, Health and Social Care decision makers we make sure parent carers are involved when designing services for our children/young people and their families.

Add your voice to other Warwickshire parent carers by joining us. We have a steering group of parents who lead this work, we listen to the views of our parents to make sure we know what is important to them and use this to guide our work.  

Let’s make sure that we are all heard, listened to and our voices shape the services we all use.

About us

We are a voluntary group of parent carers, all experts by experience, with a lived understanding of how challenging life can be raising a child with additional needs and / or disabilities.

Our aim is to gather the voices of Warwickshire parent carers and let these be heard to ensure that services meet the needs of our children and our families.
