Parent Carer Voice North Yorkshire


We are the recognised Parent Carer Forum for North Yorkshire, supporting families with children and young people (0-25 years old) with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).

Our vision is to inform, empower and represent the collective voice of families with SEND in the region. We are a community, connecting families through shared information, experiences and mutual support.

We know how isolating and confusing it can be to navigate services and family life with SEND, so we organise events and training across North Yorkshire and share information with the aim to inform and empower families. We work together, using our collective voice for positive change. We work closely and co-productively with our strategic partners and service providers such as the Local Authority and CCGs to help improve services and support for families.

If you are a parent / carer of a child 0-25 years and live in North Yorkshire, you can become a member and make use of all our services including addition to our membership mailing list, regular newsletters, offers and information about events and training in your local area. Membership is free; we just ask for a little information about you and your family’s needs. To become a member please complete the form on our website.
