Who We Are

We are a local registered charity who are actively seeking to improve services in all areas of the lives of children and young people with disabilities or additional needs. We are here for Parents and Carers of children and young people aged 0—25 years with a disability or additional needs.

We aim to work together with professionals and parents so that the services for our children and young people meet their needs. Putting parent carers and their children at the centre and helping them to be heard.

What have your experiences been like as a parent carer? If you have something to share, let us know:  YOUR SAY FORM

We are currently involved and participating in the SEND reforms. FVP parent reps and trustees attend Strategic meetings in relation to various strands of the reforms. This is ongoing and parent carers can directly participate by contacting the council via the feedback page on the Local Offer. Click here to visit Peterborough City Councils Local Offer
