• 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 almost 3,000 members.

  • Focus group: Transition to adult social care

    • Is your young person currently moving from children’s to adult social care, or have they recently made this transition?

      The Council’s Adult Social Care Service is developing a new policy for young people with disabilities moving into adulthood. Whilst it will not solve every problem, they hope that the new policy will improve things for those young people and their families.

      They want to hear about the issues that families have experienced in recent times – what worked well and what worked less well. Please come along to this meeting and talk about your experiences. Booking essential.
