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.

SEND Co-Production Charter

Co-Production week took place 1-5 July 2019. Please see below a short video that Families in Partnership was involved in for Co-Production Week

Families in Partnership represent the Parent Carer voice for those with children who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities ages 0-25 years in Worcestershire. As a group of passionate Parent Carer Representatives, we work in co-production with a variety of organisations bringing lived experience and knowledge to the decision-making process that impact on SEND children throughout the County.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Services

Local health, social and education services are working together to provide services for children and young people who have special education needs and/or disabilities (SEND). A lot of activity has taken place in the last 12 months to try to improve these services. We want parents and carers to be fully involved in shaping these services going forward so that they are effective and work for you and your children.

The purpose of this survey (please find link below) is to find out what parents and carers of children with SEND in Worcestershire think about the services available to them. The information you provide will only be used to help improve SEND services in Worcestershire.

Responses will be analysed by Worcestershire County Council and Families in Partnership. A summary report will be produced. This report will contain data and numbers only, and will never contain anything that could identify you or your child.

SEND survey

This survey will close on Friday 2nd August 2019.


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.
