Torbay Parent Carer Forum (PCF)

On 16/09/2021 the Torbay Parents Forum shared a closure notice.

Contact will be working with parent carers in Torbay to establish a parent carer forum in the area. 

There will be "Making a Difference Together" virtual meetings for interested parent carers to attend on:

Thursday 30th September 10-30pm to 12 noon

Please see invitation details below and email for log in details


A lively local forum empowers you to help improve the services you need, introduces you to new friends and provides training to boost your skills and knowledge.

Parent carer forums welcome all parent carers of children and young people with disabilities, special educational needs, health needs and other additional needs aged 0-25 years, whether diagnosed or not.

The purpose of participation in this context is to ensure better outcomes for children and young people with SEND and their families. It is about the involvement of parents with a range of professionals and strategic managers in the early stages of planning and the subsequent delivery of services. The benefit of actively involving parents in decision-making is an integral part government legislation and plans, and evidence suggests that services are improved when parents are actively involved in shaping them.

I would like to invite you to one of the virtual meeting listed below to discuss how parent participation and co production might be developed further in your area. It is essential that as parents/carers that it is your voice that is heard in the design and development of services for your children and young people.

The meetings will be on

Monday 27th September 7-00pm to 8-30pm

Thursday 30th September 10-30pm to 12 noon

Please email for log in details
