Wakefield Parent / Carer Forum 

Since 2012, KIDS have been supporting parents’ voices to be heard in the Wakefield area.

Last year a group of parents felt that it was important for parents to run their own group and started the process to become an independent forum. As of April 1st 2020 Wakefield Parent Carer Forum was relaunched.

Wakefield Parent Carer Forum is led by a Steering Group of parents who are looking forward to listening to, and representing the views of parents, young people and children in the future. These parents all have a wide experience of what it is like to be a parent of a child with an additional need or disability in the Wakefield area. Whilst we are now an independent forum, we will continue to work along side other organisations such as, Wakefield Council, NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, Barnardos WESAIL, KIDS and other charities.

We want to work together with you to make a positive difference and improve the quality of life for all children and families in Wakefield.
