The parent/carer forum in North Yorkshire has recently been relaunched. Formerly known as NYPACT, the forum is now known as Parent Carer Voice North Yorkshire.
The relaunch has included a rebrand, and a new website which can be found at https://www.parentcarervoiceuk.org/ . Parent Carer Voice North Yorkshire is for parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) who are aged 0-25.
North Yorkshire County Council has worked closely with the forum as it developed the rebranding. Closer working relationships have been established with the Council, and with health providers and commissioners.
Parent Carer Voice North Yorkshire wants to reflect more effectively the particular needs of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities throughout North Yorkshire, and to support and gather the voice of parent/carers in every locality.
The Council and health colleagues have already worked successfully with Parent Carer Voice to develop communication and information for parents/carers during the Covid-19 pandemic. Moving forward there will be an increased emphasis on co-production with the forum to develop services and provision.
