Meet & Greet Days

The Bournemouth Parent Carer Forum (BPCF) gives parents and carers an opportunity to have their say on health, social care and educational services for families who have children with a disability or SEN.
It has been set up so you can help create health, social care and educational services that meet your needs and enhance the lives of you and your family. BCPF are working with Local Authorities and the NHS to make a change.

We have now started to establish ourselves in Bournemouth and are keen to get out and tell everyone about what we are doing and why. Therefore we would like to offer to come into your workplace, school, college, support groups, etc. to tell you about our work and how we can help families in Bournemouth. Our services are all free and we are run by volunteers, so please give us a call and we would be more than happy to come in.

For more information or to arrange for us to come to a session, please contact Marion on 07585 404335 or email us using the contact form on this site.
