Placing the views of all parent carers at the heart of decision making.

We are the new forum for parent carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in East Sussex.

About Us

We work together to ensure every parent carer in East Sussex feels that their voice, their views and their experiences matter and contribute towards developing and improving services. We do this by:

Reaching out to parent carers to hear their views

Representing parents’ experience and expertise to decision-makers

Making recommendations for service improvement

For parent carers:

Please join us and get involved in raising awareness of our children’s needs, recognition of our role as parent carers and bringing about change. Sign up to become a member.

For service providing organisations:

Please get in touch to discuss how we can work together to strengthen your support to local families. Contact us.
