Contact and NNCPF (National Network of Parent Carer Forums) have put some slides together which we hope you will find useful.
Here in Wirral our Parent Carer Forum is called Parent Carer Participation Wirral (PCPW)
Who are PCPW?
PCPW are a group made up of parents and carers for children and young people aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities who live on the Wirral. Their activities are funded by Department for Education and we are overseen by a National Charity-‘Contact a Family’. They are the recognised “voice” by Contact A Family, and the Department for Education to participate with the Local Authority.
What do they do?
PCPW offer the Local Authority, commissioners and service providers the views and concerns of parent carers in order to influence service development, design and delivery on the Wirral. They aim to be the voice of parents and to contribute to the improvement of education, healthcare and social care services. PCPW hold events to gather your views and to provide you with information on SEND.
