Parent Carer Forum

Connect with other parents and carers to improve services for SEND children and young people.

Could you give your views and help shape services that meet the needs of SEND children and young people?

Northumberland Parent Carer Forum is the new Department for Education recognised parent carer forum for Northumberland. We work with the local authority, health and social care to improve services for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their families.

Communication is key to what we do. We listen to the experiences and wishes of families and make sure that those views are heard by those providing services, so that we can be part of every stage of planning and decision-making. Wherever possible, we aim to work in co-production.

You can find support at the Facebook page, on Twitter or can contact via email at

In order to represent the views of children, young people with SEND and their families, we need to hear from as many families as possible.
