Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum

Recognised and supported by the Department for Education (DfE) under the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2015)

LPCF is specifically tasked with working alongside the Local Authority and Health to help ensure that the services they plan, commission, deliver and monitor meet the needs of children with Disabilities and Special Educational Needs.

More About LPCF

The Charity

The Charity is an independent members organisation overseen by a members elected group of Trustees who are mostly parents and carers of children with disabilities and/or Special Educational Needs.

The Volunteer Trustees and Volunteers are responsible for communicating and supporting parent carers and professionals, to participate with strategic decision makers and represent the views of the large membership of parents and carers.

Membership

The membership consists of Trustees, Volunteers and Members and also a professional contact list of individuals and organisations.

We continue to enjoy a membership of 3700+ parent carers and additionally have a contact list for 700+ professionals and 800+ education settings / organisations, all of whom we try to keep fully informed of our work and opportunities.

Who LPCF work with?

Our main remit is to collect, collate and represent the views of parent carers from a variety of sources.
The information is used as evidence to feedback to service providers with a view to improve the quality, range and accessibility of services.

What LPCF do not do


When we meet a challenging issue, we will work cooperatively together with planners, commissioners and providers of services to imagine, design and deliver better services.

Volunteering

Aside from the voluntary work of the above Trustees, the Charity has an excellent team of several Volunteers who have a wide range of skills and who have worked tirelessly to support the Charity to achieve its goals and aims of serving parent carers on our membership.

Each year the volunteer Trustees and other Volunteers freely give almost 4000 hours of their time including attending 300+ meetings (800+ hours) for the benefit of our members.
