Introducing The Northants Parent Forum Group

Northants Parent Forum Group (NPFG) is an independent parent-led group formed and run by volunteers to represent the views of all families of children and young people up to aged 25 with special education needs and / or disabilities (SEND) in Northamptonshire.

We achieve this by empowering parents in effective participation with our partners in Education & Social Care within Northamptonshire County Council, our Health partners throughout Northamptonshire and other local organisations to positively improve services for our children and young people.
