    There is lots going on in Warwickshire at the moment and it is an exciting time to be part of the parent carer forum.

    We are involved with a number of projects and take your voice to the strategic meetings.

    We will let you know what we are doing here and on our facebook page and in turn would love to hear YOUR views in order to feedback to WCC.

    It’s not co production yet but the beginnings of it and we need YOU to help develop this further.

    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.

    Join Us

    You can become a Member of Warwickshire Parent Carer Voice if you have a child age 0-25 with any Special Educational Need or Disability (whether they have a diagnosis or not) and you live in or access services for your child in Warwickshire.

    OUR STRENGTH IS IN OUR NUMBERS

    Volunteer

    We run almost entirely on volunteers, our Steering Group, our Parent Reps and those who help out at events or coffee mornings or with admin. 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 the parent carers in Warwickshire can find all the information they need quickly.

    What We've done

    Find out what your Parent Carer Forum is up to and what’s been happening for families of children and young people with SEND in Warwickshire.
