BPCF is the Parent and Carer forum in Bracknell Forest. We are a voluntary and independent group of parents and carers of children and young people who have special educational needs or a disability living in Bracknell Forest (England, UK).
If there’s anything you’d like to know about us or would like us to feedback to Bracknell Forest Council regarding Special Educational Needs for children and young people then please get in touch:
Our mission is to deliver better outcomes for families living with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We aim to:
create a culture of participation and co-production across the education, health, social care and the voluntary sectors. This means that we are involved in all aspects of designing, commissioning, delivering and reviewing services as an equal partner
empower our members to ensure that their voices are heard
inspire our service partners by sharing good practice and lived experience.
Our vision is for the best possible opportunities and futures for all children and young people with SEND and their families.
"Hi, I’m the new Chair of the Forum. I moved to Bracknell about nine years ago, and am a single mum to three children. We call ourselves Team Shambles and spend our time together geocaching, exploring parks, volunteering at junior parkrun, and having lots and lots of regulating downtime.
I used to work in IT and then internal audit. Since having the children I’ve worked part time as a Clerk to Governors in local primary schools, and have a diploma in School Business Management.
If I had an hour to myself I would have a bath and read my book."
