The Parents’ Forum for Bradford and Airedale are part of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) All Parent Carer Forums in the UK are part of this. You can read more about how we fit into this here.

The long awaited SEND Green Paper was published in late March. You can now view the recording of the NNPCF Co-chairs Tina Emery and Mrunal Sisodia as they share their response to the proposals. Tina and Mrunal outline different ways that parent carer forums and individual parents can respond to the consultation and have their voices heard.

The recording of the session, presentation and the results of the Menti survey taken during the session are now available.

The NNPCF publish their parent carer survey. The responses of the survey will help to coproduce the NNPCF’s own response to the SEND Green Paper consultation.

Co-chairs Tina Emery and Mrunal Sisodia said, “The Green Paper is an opportunity to reset the SEND system after the 2014 reforms failed to deliver the improvements that families of children with SEND so desperately need. It is vital that every parent carer’s voice is heard and so we have launched a short, simple survey to gather parental views that we will use to inform our response to the Green Paper. We will, of course, also publish the survey results.”
