Family Voice Norfolk is the parent carer forum for Norfolk. We are a group of parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs/and or disabilities (SEND) in Norfolk. Our aim is to improve services for our children and young people (0–25) by ensuring that families’ voices are heard by planners and decision-makers.
Through our membership of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums we are also able to ensure that the views of Norfolk families are heard by national government.
