The forums volunteers run support groups throughout Somerset which provide opportunities for parent carers to get together, support one another and find information to help them in their role. The forum also works together in partnership with various agencies to contribute to the development of services. They aim to improve and enhance the experiences and opportunities of children and young people with additional needs or disability by putting parent carers and families at the heart of the decision making process.
“We would like to thank all our members for their support especially throughout the restructuring work since October last year. We would especially like to thank Somerset County Council and Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group for all their support during the conversion to a Community Interest Company. This is a very exciting time and we look forward to moving the forum forward and working with our rapidly increasing membership.” - SPCF Directors
