Local parent carer forums

The local forums are for Lancashire families who have a child aged up to 25 years with a disability or additional need. The forums allow families to provide regular feedback about their views and how these may shape future service delivery.

View dates of local forum meetings or contact one of the child and family support liaison officers for more information.

We post updates about local forums and family events on our local offer Facebook page
