How we can help

Highland Children's Forum strives to enable the voice of children with additional needs and that of their parent carers to directly influence policy makers to bring about change.

Forum staff are working with a number of children and young people's groups under the banner of "Inspire Highland". To follow their work check out the Facebook page, Highland Children's Forum and twitter @inspirehighland

Through its opportunities at policy committees the Forum is able to ensure the pieces of testimony from children and young people bring about change in services.

The terms of the Forum's Constitution do not allow it to act as an advocate for individuals or families. However it will signpost children or families to partner organisations or Advocacy Highland where they need specialist support to make their individual case to services.

From time to time it will host open meetings with the policy makers in services for members and other interested parties so that they get a first hand understanding of the views of service users.
