• 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.

  • Taster session: Fused glass art

    • A space for parent carers to relax and create! In this free workshop we will design and create a glass coaster. Your piece will be fired in the studio’s kiln and your creation will be ready to collect the following week. Feel free to come with ideas, but keem them simple. There will be lots of inspiration on the day too! Booking essential.

Pre-schoolers and home-educated children are welcome too. Pop in for a few minutes or stay for the whole session – no need to book. You can be sure of a warm welcome and plenty of tea, coffee and cake!
