About Us

We’re parents and carers who’ve come together to champion children and young people (from birth to 25), living in Wandsworth who are affected by disability.

Knowing that there’s strength in numbers and shared experience, we work closely with Wandsworth Council to improve provision for all families in the borough with additional needs. We set up the forum in 2009 with funding from the national initiative ‘

Aiming High for Disabled Children’, which promoted greater parent involvement in local provision.

Since our launch we’ve helped to bring parents and professionals closer together, and established a committed steering group with valuable first-hand experience across a range of disabilities, age groups and family circumstances.

We’re now looking to reach even more families right across Wandsworth so we truly represent everyone facing similar challenges. If you’re a family in the borough affected by disability, we’d welcome your involvement. Or if there’s an issue affecting local families that you’d like us to address, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
