Who we are

South Glos Parents and Carers are a supportive community of parents and carers who work to improve services and support for children, young people with additional needs and their families.


Ever proactive we attend council meetings, health service meetings and sit on various boards and panels always working towards one goal; feeding back your views and experiences on what is working and what isn’t so that services can be made more suited to the needs of our families.

South Glos Parents and Carers was formed in Oct 2009 and so far, have over approx 750 parent carers on our main database. Our main membership and social media following is growing daily.

Being parent carers ourselves, we have an in depth understanding of the issues we all face; from the challenges, to the joys our children bring.

We are want to make a difference by helping other families on their parent carer journey so that you feel more supported and informed on your own journey.

At SGPC we work to create a strong community by providing opportunities for families of SEND children to come together, provide support, share experiences and hear your views.

Our Vision:

is to see improved services and support so that families link into our SEND community, which will contribute to achieving better outcomes for families of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities in South Gloucestershire.

Our mission:

is to bring about positive change for families with children and young people (0-25) with special educational and/or disabilities in our local area.

We work in partnership with Education ,Health and Social care to help to improve services for our children & families living in South Gloucestershire.

We provide informal support for parents & carers who have a child with ANY Special Educational Need and Disability (SEND) from physical disabilities to social communication, anxiety to learning disabilities etc.
