The Eastern Region of Parent Carer Forums
Welcome from the Chair
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Eastern Region of Parent Carer Forums’ (ERPCF) Website. For those of you who are new to parent carer forum work please see the quick overview of our role below. If, however, you are a seasoned forum member or collaborator and have worked with us at regional or national level then please feel free to move through the tabs to reach the sections of most interest to you.
I hope the information on this website will introduce you to who we are and the work we do in the Eastern Region. We are co-producing on an increasing number and range of workstreams year by year. Parent participation has never been more important in identifying needs, and improving outcomes, for all children and young people with SEND. If you feel we could support your area of work, do please get in touch.
