About

We believe all families need to feel valued, listened to, respected and acknowledged - we are experts because of our lived experiences. It is so important to get our voices heard

The Essex Family Forum is a well-informed, connected and empowered community of families that includes children and young people up to the age of 25 with disabilities or additional needs. We work in partnership with organisations, our Local Authority and health commissioners aiming for quality outcomes that meet the needs of all our families. We are also part of the Eastern region (ERPCF) and national network of parent carer forums (NNPCF)
