Our Voice Parent forum

Our Voice is a parent-led organisation. As the borough’s recognised Parent Forum, we aim to support families with children and young people who have Special Educational Need(s) and/or disabilities, to maximise their life choices. We do this by working closely with families in Enfield and also all our key partners in the voluntary sector, and the local authority, in the spirit of co-production.

To do this:

o    Working with the Local Authority and Health to improve services: We represent the views of parents in discussions with local decision-making bodies and we aim to influence how policy and services for children and young people with SEN and disabilities are developed in Enfield. We also contribute to discussions on a national level.
o    Networking: we provide opportunities for parents to get together to share knowledge, expertise, information and experience.
o    Making the local community more inclusive we work with the local authority, schools and health to influence on a strategic level the provision of services in a more inclusive way.
o    Helping families to have the confidence and skills that they want and need: arranging training events to support families.
o    Family network support helpline to answer any queries you may have.
o  Disability network meetings and other meetings for parents and carers.
o    Events and outings for families.
o    Information newsletters, including a detailed newsletter twice a year and a weekly news update (term-time only).
o    Consultancy services e.g. running parent consultations, providing training for parents and professionals, running disability awareness sessions in schools.
