For parents and carers of children and young people under 19

Are you a parent or carer living in Medway and look after children aged 19 years or under?

If so, this is your chance to get involved in how services for children, young people and their families across Medway are shaped and delivered.

We currently hold meetings on the second Wednesday of every month.

Why Get Involved?
By getting involved you can learn more about the way things work in your local area and be part of helping to ensure that there are better outcomes for children and young people across Medway.

You could also gain new skills as well as meeting professionals and other parents. You will have the chance to share experiences with other parents and carers across Medway.

 What is A Parent Carer Forum?
The Medway Parent Carer Forum is a friendly group of parents who meet to discuss real issues that affect parents and carers living in Medway.

By working together the forum can make a difference to the services that you and your children receive. And who better to make that change than you.

Who is the forum for?
If you are a parent or carer and your children are aged 19 years or under and you live in Medway, you can come along.

What the forum won’t do:
The forum will work best by tackling generic issues that affect a number of people. It won’t be able to tackle specific issues that a parent or carer has.

How do I get involved?
