Thanks for clicking on the link to register your interest in volunteering with Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum

Don't worry if you're still not sure - we're not expecting you to commit to anything at this stage - it's just a chance to give you a bit more info about us and what we do, and to find out a little bit about you

What is the Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum?
Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum (CEPCF) is a group of parent carers who live in Cheshire East. We all have children or young people with additional needs.   We are part of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF)

What does the CEPCF do?
Our aim is to make sure the services in Cheshire East meet the needs of children & young people with disabilities. We work with health, education, social care and anyone who offers these services to support our families

What do volunteers do?
All sorts! Volunteers might be parent representatives, who go to meetings to help co-produce the services we use, representing the views, experiences and priorities of all our members. Others are on the steering group, who meet monthly to share news and updates and agree the activities of the parent carer forum. You might be unable to get to regular meetings, but want to represent parent carers by reading over proposals and drafts to give feedback on behalf of the members. We need parent carers - friendly people who like to get out and chat with other parents,  people with ideas, with IT know-how, administrative expertise,  social media, marketing, communication, signposting, support and advice for fellow parent carers... we need you!

Why do we do it?
We feel we can make a difference. We can use our experiences - good and bad - to try to improve services and to help other parent carers become better informed. We have all made friends, gained experience and confidence and some new skills. It is good to volunteer with friendly people who all *get it*, who understand that our commitments change and our families come first.  Plus, we sometimes have cake
