Rotherham Parent Carers Forum is a registered charity led by parents who all have children/young people with a variety of Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) and we exist to support other parent carers who live in our town.
Families often come to us at their most vulnerable and with no one to turn to and we are able to offer information, advice and guidance as well as opportunities to spend time with other parent carers to access mutual support and share experiences.
Our vision is that children and young people with SEND in Rotherham enjoy the same opportunities, hopes and aspirations as others in education, health, social care & leisure and therefore we also work in partnership with service commissioners and providers, sharing the knowledge and experience of families to help plan and develop the quality, range and accessibility of provision, creating better outcomes for families through participation and co-production.
Donations received will allow us to continue to operate our services. We have an office base and a dedicated phone line so that parents and carers have a point of contact if they are looking for some advice or support. We also run a number of social activities throughout the year allowing families to spend time together in a non judgemental environment and would love to be able to offer more outings and after school activities.
