HP4DC is a member of The National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) which is the independent national voice of parent carer forums. We get together with other forum leaders in clusters and share information and support eachother.
Our mission is to deliver better outcomes for families living with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We aim to:
- create a culture of participation and co-production across the education, health, social care and the voluntary sectors. This means that we are involved in all aspects of designing, commissioning, delivering and reviewing services as an equal partner.
- empower our members to ensure that their voices are heard at a local, regional and national level
- inspire our partners by sharing good practice and knowledge.
Our vision is a for the best possible opportunities and futures for all children and young people with SEND and their families
The NNPCF is a representative organisation, it consists of up to 152 local parent carer forums at any time across England. Each of the 9 geographical local authority regions is collectively represented within the NNPCF Steering Group. This means that each region has a parent carer forum representative who has been appointed to represent their regional and local interests at the national level to empower and enable strategic parent carer participation.
