How are parent carers involved in our work?

We work with parent carers in a number of different ways. They are involved in advising us, representing parent views in national forums, co-producing materials and training and in many cases overseeing the work we do.

We have parent carer representatives on the IASP Reference/steering group and many of our members are parent-led organisations. We work closely with local parent carer forums and several of our projects involve working closely with the National Network of Parent Carer Forums.

We will also soon be launching an individual membership scheme, which will allow parent carers to keep up to date with our work.
