10 years of funded participation of parent carers
2018 marks the 10th year of funded participation of parent carers through parent carer forums. Parent participation was initiated in 2007 through the “Aiming High for Disabled Children” programme to support the development and ongoing improvement of Short Breaks for children with disabilities. This programme was very successful in many ways, but crucially it demonstrated the positive impact of engaging with parent carers at a strategic level throughout service design and commissioning, as well as through the policy development process. This led to the creation of the ‘Parent Carer Participation Fund’ in 2008, which saw the foundations of parent carer forums being developed in each local authority area across England.
