DCT is working with this new membership group, which has been established to bring together and support parents and carers of children and young people with additional needs.
Our role is to help this parent-led group to set out its working practices, governance and marketing strategy, supporting the members to establish and grow the group successfully.
With DCT’s support, this parent-led group will provide a much-needed network for those caring for young people with additional needs. The group will ‘connect, empower and influence’, supporting the wellbeing of both parents and young people.
- It will connect parents and carers with support groups, the NHS, neighbouring and national Parent Carer Forums, the Local Authority and other professionals.
- It aims to empower through signposting, training and networking.
- It will influence policies, decisions and services through co-production.
Parent Carer Forum Devon is launching soon - watch this space for further details.
