• Welcome to the Sheffield Parent Carer Forum

    • We are an independent group of parents and carers of children and young people (0-25) with special educational needs and disabilities. Our main aim is to ensure the needs of our children are met. We bring together parent carers from across Sheffield to provide mutual support, exchange information, and influence policy and practice. We have over 2,200 members.

  • Safe Space for Black and Brown parent carers

    • We are committed to creating an environment where all parents feel they can share the difficulties they are experiencing as parents of disabled children and young people. We acknowledge that some parents from Black and Asian Minority Ethnic communities may not feel confident about attending our typical meetings. Therefore, we are running a monthly session chaired by our trustee Melissa and our volunteer Thaeeba.
