Medway Parents & Carers Forum
An independent parent led group
MPCF is an independent parent led group of parents and carers of young people (0-25) with all types of disabilities and additional support needs.
We bring together parent carers from across Medway to provide mutual support, share knowledge, and influence policy and practice. Our aim is to ensure better outcomes for families through participation and co-production.
Welcome to MPCF
We are an independent parent led charity who work with (not for) the local authority, health and local services to improve services for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their families.
To ensure all our children have the best chance in life and receive support and services needed to reach their full potential, we work alongside Medway Council and Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning group. We attend meetings, training sessions and workshops to make sure parent carers’ voices and children’s needs are being heard, helping plan and develop the quality, range, and accessibility of services, creating better outcomes for families through participation and co-production.

We offer coffee mornings, training and workshops both in person and online. Meet the professional events with a chance to meet with representatives of local service providers including Medway Council and Kent and Medway CCG.
Join Our Forum
Many families of children with SEN feel isolated and find it difficult to share their experiences with those outside the SEN community, join us to connect with other local parents and carers in similar situations, share your views and experiences without judgement. Benefit from training on topics such as ECHP’s and give your feedback on local services like school transport. Make your voice part of the collective feedback that can make changes for the future of SEN services in Medway.
