Staffordshire Parent Carer Forum (StaffsPCF) is an independent organisation run by volunteers who are all parents or carers of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). We know how difficult it can be to navigate “the system” to ensure the best provision and outcomes for our children and we are working hard to improve this.
We aim to build a wide and representative membership and work in partnership with families of children with SEND aged 0-25*. By sharing the collective voice of families, we are able to work in coproduction with service commissioners and providers, enabling them to develop and implement targeted, quality services that best meet the needs of our children, young people and their families.
We are also part of the regional and national network of parent carer forums (more than 150) across England that meet with the National Network of Parent Carer Forums to influence government policy.
None of this is possible without the parents and carers that volunteer their time to participate. Whether that’s becoming a member, filling out a survey, coming to share your experience at a webinar or coffee morning or attending meetings. You all play a vital role in our mission to shape the best services for children and young people with SEND in Staffordshire.
All information we receive is confidential in line with our GDPR and Code of Conduct policies, anonymised and only used to inform the development of current and future services at strategic level. The link to the Membership Form is below.
*Members must live in Staffordshire and be parents or carers of a child or young person with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) who is aged 0-25. Parents and carers of children with SEND who use services in Staffordshire are also eligible to join.
