Welcome to Parent Carer Foundation

Parent Carer Foundation is an independent, inclusive and diverse charity for parents and carers (of all ages). We were initially set up in 2010, and our charity recognises the caring role of anyone living with everyday challenges of being a parent or carer of children and adults, caring for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, life-limited, disabled or has mental health needs.

Parent Carer Foundation supports parents and carers to participate, engage and express their views as a collective voice to all organisations who shape and deliver services locally for all disabled children, adults, SEND or special educational needs, with or without a diagnosis.

We will collect, collate and share your feedback on what is working well and what could be improved with all relevant organisations with constructive criticism and co-productive dialogue.

As a member of Parent Carer Foundation, you will all have an opportunity to discuss with us your needs as a carer. We know how lonely and isolated you can feel whilst looking after your disabled child, young person or adult.Once you make contact with us, you are not alone. So, contact us or pop along to one of our many events throughout the year to have a chat.

Let Parent Carer Foundation enable you to make your voice heard.

Parent Carer Foundation's vision is that parents, families and carers voices count regardless of their age, creed, background and nationality, and they should be able to access the help and services that they may need to improve the quality of their lives.

We are working in partnership with a variety of local and national organisations to make sure that services are accessible and available to meet the needs of children, carers and their families. We aim to build strong and sustainable links to further enhance the voices of parents and carers with regard to their issues and concerns.

Parent Carer Foundation wants to achieve this by putting forward your concerns and issues to relevant key policymakers and service providers, your information will always be kept confidential, and we have an open-door policy for anyone to join us. Parent Carer Foundation is an independent and self-funded charity and this puts us at an advantage as we are not afraid to share your concerns no matter how big or little they may appear to you or your families.
