Reading Families' Forum

Reading Families' Forum are a charity run by local parent carers with children and young people with a variety of special needs and disabilities and over 190 members.

We hold a coffee evening at Krazy Play Days every half-term with a variety of speakers and a chance for parents to talk together while the children have fun while supervised by Forum helpers experienced in working with children and an annual information and fun day for families of children with additional needs.

The Forum has groups of parents affiliated to us at 28 schools in Reading. If your school hasn't already got a group for parents of children with addition needs, ask us for help in setting one up. It is a great chance to chat to other parents in the same boat. The Forum also helps arrange speakers on sleep, managing behaviour and anxiety, finances and more.

The Forum are always keen for parents to join our steering group. We hold parent carer steering groups every half term to plan our work over a relaxing coffee. The steering group meet Education, Social Care and Health managers to discuss the needs of our children. You can do as much or as little as you want. It is great to be working with like-minded parents to improve things for our children and families.
