We are a friendly group of parent carers who have children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities aged 0-25 years. We support and train parent carers to enable them to have input and be involved with shaping services alongside the professionals who provide health, education, adult and social services. Our shared mission is to improve and enhance the experiences and opportunities of children and young people with additional needs by enabling parents and carers to be heard and be at the heart of decisions about development and delivery of services in Poole. The forum will represent the views of the collective community and not an individual voice. The role of the forum is not to advocate for individual families and will signpost to specialist services.

Brilliant News!!Borough of Poole is pleased to announce that work to build a new paddling pool for Hamworthy Park will start in early February.
The Council has committed a total of £350k to fund this popular and much loved attraction and has increased the budget following a recent tender process to ensure that we deliver a long term and high quality facility that is enjoyed for many years to come. An additional £31k has also been provided by the Friends of Hamworthy Park.
Cllr John Rampton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Borough of Poole, said: “This is fantastic news for Hamworthy and all those who enjoy visiting the paddling pool. We have consistently said that we are fully committed to rebuilding the pool and with external grant funding not being forthcoming, we have worked hard to finance its successful delivery. I am delighted that today we are able to confirm it will go ahead.”
Works to rebuild the paddling pool will start in February and be completed before the coming summer. ... See MoreSee Less
