Parents' Forum for Bradford and Airedale

What does it do?

The Forum works to support parents and carers of children and young people up to 25 years old who have disabilities/additional needs in the Bradford and Airedale district. The Forum works to enable better access to information about services, and to improve channels of communication between services, professionals and parents and carers. They provide opportunities for parents and carers to have a voice in service development and planning. The group has parent representatives on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Strategic Partnership and on the Children’s Trust Board. It also holds workshops focusing on particular aspects of disability, for example Education, Health and Care Plans.
