Welcome to Rochdale Parent Carers Voice
Our forum joins together parents and carers who look after disabled children and young people to bring positive change from our lived experiences. We listen to families to find out what is important to them and determine whether services across Rochdale, Heywood, Pennines and Middleton meet their needs.
We work in partnership with local authorities, education settings and health providers to highlight where local services, processes and commissioners are working well, or challenge when changes or improvements need to be made.
- Signpost to relevant services and share information
- Provide friendly spaces for parent carers to support each other at our regular coffee meetings and through our Facebook group (the views, opinions and advice expressed on our Facebook page are those of individuals and are not necessarily representative of the Rochdale Parent Carers Voice.)
- Offer training and coaching for parent carers and professionals
Everyone involved in running the forum is a parent carer to a disabled child/children or young person/people. Many of our staff are volunteers who feel passionately about bringing their knowledge and experience to the table when decisions are being made.
If you feel passionate about improving services for disabled children and young people across Rochdale Borough, why not fill out a membership form and join us.
