Who are we?

WSPCF is a community of parent carers who all have a child (aged 0-25 years) with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND. Our mission is to offer information, support and training. By sharing our experiences and knowledge, we aim to build your confidence as you navigate your own ‘special needs’ journey.

What do we do?

We believe that every single one of us can make a difference, and that is why we invite you to join our community. We will help you to use your experiences in parenting and caring for a child with SEND to participate in shaping the services that we all benefit from. Your input will:

  • improve confidence that commissioned services meet the needs of children and young people with SEND
  • bring a different perspective and challenge others’¬†thinking
  • ensure that children and young people with SEND are valued and engaged.


We call this ‘co-production’.
