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 our large membership of parents and carers.

Membership

Our membership consists of Trustees, Volunteers and Members, although we also liaise with professionals.

We continue to enjoy a membership of nearly 2200+ parent carers and additionally have a contact list for 700+ professionals and 700+ 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 and use the information and ensure these are fed back to service providers with a view to improve the quality, range and accessibility of services . WE ARE THE PARENTS VOICE !!

What LPCF do not do



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.
