Somerset Parent Carer Forum is an independent not for profit Community Interest Company formed by parent carers in 2016. The forum steering group consists of parents who have children and grandchildren with special educational needs and disabilities who attend an early years setting, main stream school, special school, independent provision or home educate.
They welcome any parent, grandparent or foster parent to engage with the Forum about their child or young persons experiences regardless of their disabilities, these may range from complex medical needs to challenging behaviour, learning or physical difficulties. You not need a diagnosis to be in place to join them.
Online Support Groups are available online via closed Facebook groups that give you up to date advice and information that is available when you are. https://www.facebook.com/groups/FindingYourWay/
