We are an independent group for parents and carers of children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and disabilities living in the London Borough of Havering.
We provide parent carers with information, support and training to improve and make positive changes to the lives of their families. We also enable them to take part in helping to shape local services and make a difference.
As the parent forum for Havering we work with local authorities, education, health and other providers to make sure the services they plan and deliver meet the needs of our children in order to maximise their potential.
