SEND Family Voice Torbay - Parent Carer Forum

We are a small, independent, passionate group of volunteers, dedicated to listening and responding positively to the views of parents and carers of SEND children and young people.  Our aim is to make life just that little bit easier by providing mutual support and exchanging information through to influencing policy and practice. We receive an annual grant from the Department for Education, to strengthen and sustain parent carer participation

We want to listen to and respond to the needs of parents for our SEND children and young people helping them access services and co-produce a positive change in the planning, commissioning, delivery and review of services

We aim to use our collective voice for change by working co-productively with Torbay Council and other agencies to improve communication and remove barriers for the benefit of SEND families in Torbay. We are welcoming being part of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums, which brings together over 150 parent carer forums in England. Together, these local forums reach over 80,000 families.

SEND Family Voice Torbay are working with Torbay Council, the local NHS and other partners to help bring about improvements in SEND services and say hearing from local families is vital.

“By working with all our partners in health, education, and social care on a co-production basis, we want to help create change so that all children with SEND will have the very best life chances.”
