Southwark Parent Carer Council is a parent led forum, by parents and for parents.

We do our best to represent you and your children and ensure that children and young people with additional needs are considered by decision makers in Southwark. Considering that we are run by parents’ volunteers, we are well-established in Southwark.

However, our group needs you! We would like to find out about your talents and ideas, as well, as issues your family is facing due to disability or additional need. You are the experts in your children needs and we would like you to share your experience with other parents and service providers.

There are opportunities to work with our local authority to improve Southwark services so they meet needs of our children and young people. Therefore, we encourage you to come to the event and let other parents know about it.

Additionally to inspiring speakers and guests, we will also provide pamper sessions, free raffle and healthy lunch. To fully benefit from the event booking is essential.
