WELCOME TO THE PARENT FORUM
Waltham Forest Parent Forum is a friendly, voluntary group of parent/carers of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities aged 0-25 in Waltham Forest.
You will probably already have seen the government’s announcement about vaccinations for clinically extremely vulnerable people aged 12 – 15. On Monday the government committee on vaccinations and the Vaccines Minister, Nadhim Zahawi, announced that some clinically vulnerable young people aged 12-15 will now get access to the Covid vaccine.
JOIN THE FORUM
By joining The Parent Forum you will be able to add your voice and become part of a large parent group which is able to feedback parent carer views to key policy makers in the borough and to national organisations and bodies.
Membership of The Forum is free and we do not ask anything of you unless you want to become involved in forum activities and consultations. Participation opportunities are published on our website.
You can join Waltham Forest Parent Forum as a professional member. By joining our network, you will receive information about events, consultations and activities which you can then forward to families who may benefit from our support.

POWER IN NUMBERS
This very short animation shows how parents and carers working together have a stronger voice and how taking part in planning and decision-making can help to ensure that families get the services they need.
