Event description
Swansea has a new peer led parent carer forum.

About this Event

In January 2018, a group of parent carers began working co-productively with Swansea Local Authority to commission a new Parent Carer Forum. This is the result and we look forward to sharing our vision, purpose and aims with you.

We are delighted that Carrie Grant, herself a parent carer, will be supporting our launch by giving our keynote speech. She has a deep understanding of raising and supporting children with complex needs. Carrie is as passionate as we are that working together in equal partnership with service providers will produce better services that work for families.

We hope you will join us and find out how you can be involved.

As well as finding out more about us and our work, we have also assembled a number of organisations that work to support disabled children, young people and adults and their families.
