Contact offers the support below to parent carer forums.
(Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, some things may be subject to change – some face to face regional network meetings, planned face to face training or even the annual conference may need to be modified. Nobody is sure just yet how long the virus will affect us all. Contact and forums will need to diversify this year, move to virtual support, be flexible and to keep assessing what is possible through the year. If any forum is experiencing difficulties or would like support with anything that might have been impacted by the pandemic, please get in touch with your adviser.)
Please go to the learning and events for forums page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
