Representing Parents and Carers

As a parent carer forum, we ensure that the voices of Bolton’s parent carers are heard by SEND professionals locally, and also nationally. Services have a duty to consider parent carers, childrens and young peoples views, when developing, reviewing and changing any services that are used by families with a child or young person (0-25) with SEND. 

We do this in a number of ways, whether it’s through sitting on formal groups, or developing relationships with professionals, we are always ensuring the voice of local families is represented. To find out more about how we represent families, and where, click the button below.
