The Department for Education is responsible for children’s services and education, including early years, schools, higher and further education policy, apprenticeships and wider skills in England.
Little Hiccups is a Leeds based, award winning support group that has been set up by parents who have children with additional needs and disabilities. It is through personal experience we recognise the importance of allowing parents and families of a child with an additional needs/disability the opportunity to meet people in similar situations, to make friends and support each other. Little Hiccups can support families that have a child(ren) aged 16 and under with additional needs or a disability.
The National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) is the independent national voice of parent carer forums. Our mission is to deliver better outcomes for families living with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
Our vision is for SNAPS to be an inspirational place connecting families and children with a wide range of challenges and opportunities. We aim to promote health and well-being for all by providing opportunities for people to meet, learn, play, and build relationships. We are an inclusive organisation, involving the whole family, including siblings with no special needs.
Sunshine and Smiles
West Yorkshire CANN
West Yorkshire CANN is formed of third sector, voluntary community and statutory organisations working with families and carers with children and young people with additional needs, in West Yorkshire.
It has been established so that Member Organisations can share best practice, resources, ideas and opportunities, in order to improve access to information, training and support for families and carers across the West Yorkshire area and the region, and to help to create a more efficient and effective ‘market place’ to the benefit of all users of our services, and the organisations involved.
The NNPCF membership is made up of the Parent Carer Forums from across England who are a recipient of the Department for Educations Participation Grant.
We have divided the Parent Carer Forums into a regional structure that allows for each region to come together and collectively support one another. These regional networks each have an NNPCF Steering Group Member allocated to them to champion their collective experience and voice, and to inform and influence national policy and decision making on their behalf using a representative model. Each region operates in a way that suits their needs and purpose best, which is detailed in their regional network pages where appropriate.
