WHO WE ARE
Wakefield Parent Carer Forum is an independent parent led forum who work with families of children with special educational needs and/or disability, aged 0-25 years old, living in the Wakefield area.
The forum is led by a group of local 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.
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.
