Rotherham Parents Forum Ltd

We are an independent forum led by a team of parents who all have children with a variety of special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). We work in partnership with public, private & voluntary sector organisations to achieve our vision which is that children and young people with SEND in Rotherham enjoy the same opportunities, hopes and aspirations as others in education, health, social care & leisure. We contribute to strategic meetings as equal partners representing the voice of our families. We also provide a variety of social opportunities to bring families together to provide mutual support, share experience & exchange information as well as reduce some of the isolation that is very often experienced being the parent of a disabled child.

Rotherham Parents Forum work with those who provide services for disabled children and their families. The forum shares knowledge, experience and what families tell them to help plan and improve the quality, range and accessibility of services for all disabled children and their families in Rotherham.

Partnership working with Health, Education and Social Services creates a culture that ensures families are at the heart of policy that affects them whilst realistically creating the best possible outcomes with the resources available in Rotherham.

We Aim To:

  •          be a united voice by providing a forum for views
  •          work in partnership with those who provide services
  •          enable disabled children* and their families in Rotherham to lead full lives, through seeking to improve services, and by providing informal support
  •          encourage and promote inclusive attitudes and practice
  •          promote disability equality and challenge discrimination
  •          gather information from parents and carers, and highlight common priorities
  •          find out what support/services children and families need
  •          provide examples of good practice
  •          be supportive to all families
  •          be accessible to all
  •          speak for as many parents as possible


We bring together parents/carers from across the borough to provide mutual support, share experience, exchange information and influence policy.
