National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF)
The National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) was launched in 2011, and is funded by central government.
We became a formally constituted Group in November 2013. The NNPCF membership is made up of Parent Carer Forums of which there is one in almost every local authority area in England. Each parent carer forum in receipt of the Department of Education participation grant is a member of the NNPCF.
The NNPCF is a network of local forums meeting in regional settings, working together to effect local and national service improvement through participation and co production with parent carers.
Each Parent Carer Forum includes parent carers with a full range of experiences in Health, Education and Social Care as their children have a wide range of conditions.
Parents in the network total over 52,000: they contribute to local, regional and national consultations.
We continue to develop closer working relationships with local authorities and health authorities at all levels, including local working with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
The National Network of Parent Carer Forums is a network of over 150 Parent Carer Forums in England.
The forums are arranged into 9 regions and are shown below, these follow the same regional breakdown as the Department of Education; each of the regions has a regional representative. All regional representatives work together to form the national steering group.
