How does it work?

By joining the forum you are part of a network of hundreds of parent carers across the county. Together we have a strong voice within the Local Authority, with Health and with a range of organisations who provide support for families and our children with SEND. Parent Representatives from around Lancashire meet regularly with officers and decision makers at the county forum to inform them about the issues and concerns that affect parent carers in their area and that cannot be resolved locally. Working groups of parents and professionals discuss the cause of these Lancashire based issues and make recommendations to the decision makers that can affect future changes in policy, procedures and service provision for families.
