Helping Parents & Carers Across Derby
‘Parent Carers Together’ – the Forum for Derby City
The Forum is an independent, non-political group that represents parents and carers of children and young people (0-25yrs) with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We are funded by the Department for Education as the recognised Parent Carer Forum for Derby City. We work on local issues and have input at a regional and national level.
We work in partnership with education, health and social care organisations, to get the best outcomes for our children and young people. We give parents and carers a voice, encouraging them to give feedback on a range of issues. We also signpost to services that can offer support and advice. The Forum is a voluntary group of parents and carers who want to make a difference, helping to give all children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities the best possible future.
We welcome new members and volunteers. We have regular events and meetings and keep parents and carers informed about what’s happening in Derby, as well as wider issues which can impact on our children and young people.
