HPF was set up to represent the voices of all parents/carers of ANY child with SEN and disability in Harrow, 0-25 years old. The steering group/advisory board members working on behalf of the forum are all volunteer parents of children with SEN and disability.
Why is it important to get involved and have your say about services?
In a time when local councils, NHS services and local support organisations have to find ways to save money and cut down on waste, your views on how the services should be run and how much your family need the services, can help decide whether or not funding would be secured to continue those services. Join us, take part and have your say, and represent all families in Harrow and save essential services we all need.
