Liverpool Parent and Carers - LivPaC

Who we are: -

Liverpool Parent and Carers Forum (LivPaC) is a group of parents and carers of children and young people with special additional needs and/or disabilities (SEND) who work with education, health and care services to ensure the services they plan and deliver are fit for purpose and meet the needs of children, young people and their families across Liverpool.  We have a Steering Group of parent and carer volunteers who lead this work and who actively seek out the experiences and views of parents and carers across Liverpool to make sure we know what is important to them.  We aim to give parents and carers a collective voice and use our experience, knowledge and feedback from families to help commissioners and providers plan and develop the quality, range and accessibility of services families use.


What we do: -

Through our participation and co-production, we are working to create a culture across all services which places the needs of families at the centre of the decision making.


We Aim to:

  • empower parents/carers to have a voice
  • give information
  • be a collective voice for as many families as possible across Liverpool by providing a forum for views to help develop services
  • work in partnership with service providers
  • be supportive and accessible to all families across Liverpool
  • provides examples of good practice
  • provide informal support
  • encourage and promote inclusive attitudes and practice


''Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much''
