Waltham Forest Parent Forum


Waltham Forest Parent Forum is a friendly, voluntary group of parents and carers of disabled children and young people aged 0 to 25 in the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

Our aims are:

  • To provide an opportunity to participate in joint decision making on services.
  • To provide emotional, practical and social support.
  • To help reduce isolation and increase well-being.
  • To provide information to help increase knowledge of the SEND (special educational needs/disability) reforms and legislation.
  • To improve and influence those services affecting these families.

Meetings: Dates/times of meetings and events can be found on our website
Creche: We have no creche facilities at the moment 
Together there is Power in Numbers!
