Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum

"If you want to know how well a pair of shoes fit, you ask the person wearing them, not the person  who made them or paid for them."

Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum (BBPCF)  are a group of parents and carers of SEN & disabled children who work in partnership with local authorities, education, health, social care and other providers to ensure the services they commission, plan and deliver meet the needs of SEN & disabled children and their families. Any parent or carer of a child or young person aged 0-25 can be a member.

Please see the below  video about BBPCF, what we do, and why it's beneficial for you to become a member

Get Involved!

Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum wants to hear from all parent carers who live, use and access services within Bedford Borough.

  • Could you provide feedback on particular services?
  • Would you like to be involved in designing or planning services?
  • Do you want to meet other parent carers who are passionate about improving outcomes for children, young people and their families? We regularly run online training and information sessions for parent carers on a variety of subjects.
  • Would you like to see improved services in your local area?

You can be involved as much or as little as you like and every opinion is valued.
