Family Voice Norfolk is the parent carer forum for Norfolk. We work with (not for) the local authority, health and social services to improve services for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their families.
We are not a support or information service, but communication is key to what we do. We listen to the experiences and wishes of families and make sure that those views are heard by those providing services, so that we can be part of every stage of planning and decision-making. Wherever possible, we aim to work in co-production.
We are an independent, voluntary organisation, funded by the Department for Education, Norfolk County Council and the five Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Norfolk.
