Somerset Parent Carer Forum
Somerset Parent Carer Forum’s activities are carried out for the benefit of Parent Carers and families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Somerset. The work we do is focused in the following areas:
- Enabling families to have a voice
- Enabling families to support themselves
- Enabling families to support each other
We organise local groups and workshops to bring parents carers together for practical and emotional support. Topics include welfare reform, challenging behaviour, managing relationships and transitions. We connect families going through similar experiences or whose child has the same condition or disability. We organise coffee mornings so parents can make new friends and socialise.
