Support Us

Are you compassionate and have a strong desire for change?

We are looking for a pool of parents and carers to represent the East Yorkshire Parent Carer Forum (EYPCF), a group of Parent Carers who want to be effective in supporting children/young people and families in the area.

Do you have experience you can offer to strengthen the forum?

If you live in East Yorkshire and have a child/young person aged up to twenty-five with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND), we would love you to join us as a voluntary Parent Carer Representative.

What is the role of a Parent Carer Representative?

You will play a vital part in the strategic direction of the services provided for SEND children, young people, and their families in East Yorkshire. You will be helping to make a difference!

The role is very flexible, but it does require a level of commitment. We want you to shape the role to suit however much or little time you can dedicate. As a Forum we will be there to help support you and offer training where needed.

You will be working to:

  • Help raise the profile of EYPCF and engage Parent Carers in your local community.
  • Capture feedback from Parent Carers on their experiences of services.
  • Help to grow forum membership by encouraging parents to join.
  • Participate in new authority initiatives.
  • Help build a database of voluntary support groups and SEND services in East Yorkshire
  • Support the Management Committee in further development of the work priorities of EYPCF.
