The Parents’ Forum’s Impact and Influence

We empower parents/carers by influencing positive changes in health,
education and social care policies and practices for families, children and young people with disabilities/additional needs.

There are approximately 20,000 children and young people in the Bradford district who have a disability or additional need. That’s a lot of parent carers! Our aim is to support them all and be their voice.

How do we do this?

We represent the voice of our parent carer members by attending the following meetings so we can pass your views on to the people who make the decisions:

We are in regular contact with local support groups and organisations, reaching several thousand parent carers.

We jointly organise events for support groups to get together and discuss issues that are important to their members.
