Parent carer forums are responsible for understanding the collective views of parent carers in their local area. 


Coventry Parent Carer Forum is an independent group run by parent carers. We work alongside Coventry City Council and local health agencies as equal partners to help improve services for children and young people with additional needs and their families.  If you are a parent carer, we aim to empower you to help improve the services you need, introduce you to new friends and provide free training to boost your skills and knowledge. 


Watch the video What is a Parent Carer and What do they do? to find out more about parent carer forums and how parents across England are helping improve local and national services for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Watch Making a Difference, Why Should I Join My Local Parent Carer Forum? to hear parent carer forum members talking about why they got involved with their local parent carer forum. 

Coventry City Council and statutory health organisations like hospitals and GP practices have a duty to listen to the collective voice of their local parent carer forum.



Coventry Parent Carer Forum is currently hosted by the Entrust Care Partnership.
