Supporting Parents: Including Our Children
Sheffield Parent Carer Forum is an independent group of parents and carers of children aged 0-19, with disabilities and/or special educational needs, including children with autism, dyslexia, Down Syndrome, speech and language impairments, behaviour or emotional difficulties, hearing or sight impairment, learning difficulties, physical disabilities, cerebral palsy and many others.
The Sheffield Parent Carer Forum want to make sure the needs of our children are met, from all backgrounds and cultures and parts of the city. The Forum has over 500 members and wants to keep on growing, so it can have a stronger voice to improve education, health and social services for our children.
The Forum are working with Watoto Pre-school, Tinsley Children’s Centre and SADACCA to put on different activities for parents to have some time out, get to know each other, support each other and find out what services and breaks available. The first events will be days out at the end of January, February and March, during school hours, for parents with children aged 6 months to 5 years, with exclusive use of a play centre and trips out of Sheffield. There will also be a big event at SADACCA over the Easter holidays, with activities for children, pampering for mums (and dads!), health checks and information.
