Voice4Parents represents the views of parents and carers in Wolverhampton, however, please be aware we do not advocate for individual families.
We have a steering group who seek the views and experiences of other parents and carers within Wolverhampton to make sure services and the local authority know what is working well and where improvements can be made.
Voice4Parents’ steering group is made up of parents and carers whose children are aged between 0 and 25 years and have a wide range of additional needs. Steering group members are from differing communities and backgrounds and all share a common purpose, to ensure the voice of parents and carers in Wolverhampton remains at the heart of service planning and delivery.
The steering group works in co-production (as equal partners) with the local authority, and with professionals in education, and in health, as well as other providers to make sure the services they plan and deliver meet the needs of children, young people and their families within Wolverhampton.
They meet regularly with key SEND leads from the local authority and health care providers and share common views and experiences, working together to make positive changes to services that children and young people aged 0-25 and their families receive.
This doesn't always mean more money and resources; quite often a small change to working practices can make a real difference.
