Working together in partnership with local families and organisations

SEFTON PARENT CARER FORUM

Sefton Parent Carer Forum is a voluntary group of parent carers who feel passionately, about ensuring all our children have the best chance in life and should receive the correct support and services to achieve their full potential.

To make this happen, we work alongside our local authority to have a better understanding of SEND needs in Sefton. We attend meetings, forums and workshops to make sure parent carers’ voices and children’s needs are being heard at all levels within health, education and social care services.
