National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF)

The National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) aim is to ensure that good practice, knowledge and shared expertise about parent participation continues to grow and strengthen, and to develop a cohesive and coherent structure to sustain and develop the effectiveness of parent carer forums across England, individually and as a collective voice.

NNPCF addresses the big issues, champions specific themes, and with Local Parent Carer Forums, identifies common priorities.  They ensure that information and experiences are shared so that service delivery can be influenced at a national level.  Members of the National Network are also likely to represent the views of Local Parent Carer Forums on national strategic planning groups.

The aims of the NNPCF are:

  • to ensure that good practice, knowledge and shared expertise about parent participation continues to grow and strengthen.
  • to develop a cohesive and coherent structure to sustain and develop the effectiveness of parent carer forums across England.
  • to strengthen the pan disability, parent led model of local forums and boost our collective voice.
