Become a member of NPCF

Become a member of NPCF and join hundreds of other parents and carers from across Nottinghamshire.

We are a charity run by and for parents and carers of children and young people with additional needs and disabilities.

We are dedicated to getting parent/carers’ voices heard so they can inform the planning and delivery of services they use.

We attend meetings with local and regional service providers giving parent carers’ views and experiences of health, education and social care ensuring that parent carers’ needs are represented.

The forum focuses on improving services by influencing commissioners and decision makers, based on the view that disabled children and their parents best understand what they need from the services in their area.

Together we’re stronger | Together we can make a difference

If you would like to get more involved you can:

The NPCF Steering Group is made up of a group of members (all parents of children and young people with SEND) who are responsible for the management of the forum and they represent Nottinghamshire’s parent carers at specific meetings. They make sure that parent carers’ views are fed into decisions about children’s services at a strategic level.

Parents and carers can always express an interest to join the Steering Group.

At present there are no vacancies but we do keep a waiting list. Any new member will receive training and go through an induction process to support them in their new role.
