Get Involved


Joining the forum is free and will give you access to our newsletter, social events and training. Once you have signed up you will get a second important invitation in which we will ask you to anonymously complete a data form that helps us know more about our members but protects your privacy.  Please help us by completing both forms.

The forum is run by a group of volunteers, all of whom are Parent Carers themselves with the support of our Forum Coordinator Helen and Forum Administrator, Michelle who work part time hours to give assistance to the committee. 

There are lots of ways you can be involved with the forum that can offer you opportunities to meet other parent carers whilst helping us become a stronger voice for families of disabled children in Gloucestershire.

SOCIAL HOSTS – Would you like to bring parent carers together in your area? Why not help us set up a regular social meet and listening event? You can do this as an individual or a small group.

REPRESENTATIVES – Receive free training to develop your advocacy skills and receive a voluntary remuneration for attending meetings to give the views of Parent Carers.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS – Help with the strategic management of the Forum, we meet every 6-8 weeks for coffee/lunch and plan the forum’s work for the coming months
