Charity information

Rotherham Parent Carers Forum

Rotherham Parent Carers Forum is a registered charity led by parents who all have children/young people with a variety of Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) and we exist to support other parent carers who live in our town.

Families often come to us at their most vulnerable and with no one to turn to and we are able to offer information, advice and guidance as well as opportunities to spend time with other parent carers to access mutual support and share experiences.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    Our vision is that children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities in Rotherham enjoy the same opportunities, hopes and aspirations as others in education, health, social care & leisure and to achieve this we work in partnership with service commissioners and providers, sharing the knowledge and experience of families to help plan and develop the quality, range and accessibility of provision. We hope to create better outcomes for families through participation and co-production.
