Parent Carer Forum

Families in Partnership     

‘Families in Partnership’ is a Parent Carer Forum. A Parent Carer Forum is a group of parents and carers of disabled children who work with local authorities, education, health and other providers to make sure the services they plan and deliver meet the needs of disabled children and families.

Worcestershire's SEND Charter

Our commitment to working together in Partnership

This charter has been created by Families in Partnership, Worcestershire's recognised Parent Carer Forum and all of the partner members of Worcestershire's SEND Improvement Board.

It outlines our agreed way of working together to create good services for our children and young people.


Worcestershire’s Parent Carer Forum links to the National Network of Parent Carer Forums.

The National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) is the independent national voice of parent carer forums and their mission is to deliver better outcomes for families living with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Families in Partnership also link into the West Midlands Regional Parent Carer Forum.

To read more about NNPCF and the WM Parent Carer Forum, as well as our Aims and how we work together in partnership please see the About Us page.
