Family Voice Surrey

We are your voice.

Join your voice with others and effect change.

Family Voice Surrey champions the needs and rights of SEND families in Surrey: families with children or young adults up to the age of 25 who have special educational needs, chronic illnesses, including mental health conditions, or disabilities.

Family Voice Surrey was set up in 2010 and became a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) in 2017.

We are always pleased to hear from new members who would like to be more involved. Check out our ‘Get Involved’ tab for more information.

The role of Parent Carer Forums is recognised in the Children and Families Act 2014, providing a platform for us in Surrey as the official voice of parent carers of children and young people with additional needs. We gather and represent the parent carer views in meetings concerning implementation of SEND legislation and planning and delivery of SEND services, working with representatives from the local authority, local schools, and health. We also build strong relationships with other Surrey-based organisations working in different ways to support children and young people with additional needs.
