Who are the Birmingham Parent Carer Forum?
The Birmingham Parent Carer Forum (BPCF) is an independent group of parents and carers of children with additional needs. They work to make sure services meet the needs of children and young people with SEND, and their families.
They do this by gathering the views of local families and then working in partnership with local authorities, education settings, and health providers to highlight where local services are working well, or challenge them when improvements are needed.
Who can join?
Any parent or carer of a child or young person with a disability or additional needs residing in Birmingham or accessing Birmingham services can join the Birmingham Parent Carer Forum. This includes grandparents and foster parents. The BPCF are committed to being inclusive of all families from diverse backgrounds.
