What we do

Torbay Parent Carer Forum represents your views in a number of ways:


These can be a one-off or a series of meetings that look at a very specific topic or concern and will generally have a range of relevant people there and specific things to look at.

Working Groups

This is a group containing all the key people involved in that service, of which a parent is one, which meets to look at specific services or element or documentation of that service and usually meets for a set number of times or has a specific task or job to do within a set timescale.

Steering Group

This is a group containing key people involved in that service, of which a parent is also one, that looks at a specific service or part of and collectively shapes the way that service continues and is shaped or developed in the future. They usually have meetings at regular intervals of 4 to 6 weeks and can continue for the duration of the project or service. 


In addition to organising and running our own events, this also includes talking at conferences, speaking about your experience/s as parent/carers, and being part of training delivered to practitioners from all sectors. Please click here to learn more about our events. 


This is where a service provider has asked for parent carer’s views on a specific service and can be done individually or in small or large groups. It could be at an event where services providers may or may not be present or could simply mean completing an online survey.
