The voice of every parent matters

and we work to make sure every voice is heard.

Informing and empowering parents

Informed parents are empowered parents (whatever age their children may be)!

We help to get your voice heard

Parents’ Voice acts as a link between parents and the organisations delivering services for families in Worcestershire

What Is Parents Voice?

Welcome to the Parents’ Voice website, run by Worcestershire parents for Worcestershire parents. We want to be a voice for parents and carers in the county.

Ever felt alone struggling as a parent? Have you felt that there’s a better way to do something? Do you need information? You are not the only one!

As parents and carers in Worcestershire, we want Worcestershire to be a great place for our children and young people to grow up in.  For many issues that we encounter there is not one answer, so we want you to help us with your views and ideas.  We will use your thoughts to influence decisions which are made in Worcestershire.  We are parents just like you and we will try to work with you to make a change.”

About Parents’ Voice?

As parents and carers in Worcestershire, we want Worcestershire to be a great place for our children and young people to grow up in.  For many issues that we encounter there is not one answer, so we want you to help us with your views and ideas.  We will use your thoughts to influence decisions which are made in Worcestershire.  We are parents just like you and we will try to work with you to make a change.

Parents’ Voice will do this by sharing information with you about developments and changes to services for children, young people and their families and letting you know how you can get involved. We will also tell you about consultations which you may like to take part in, both local and national.

What We Do

  • As a group we gather parents’ points of view, try to influence change and keep parents informed.  We try to do this in several different ways:
  • Consultations – Collecting views from parents around their concerns and how things can be improved. We try to make parents aware of consultations carried out by other organisations (such as Worcestershire County Council) and also conduct our own surveys.
  • Children’s Trust – As a group we have a seat on the Children’s Trust arrangement in Worcestershire. This is a group of professionals who are working to improve Worcestershire for children, young people and their families.  Our representative shares parent’s views and influences the decisions made.
  • National Consultations – we take part in national consultations giving Worcestershire parents an opportunity to influence national decisions.
  • Information – we try to keep our supporters informed by sending out regular emails.
  • Social Media – We also use social media to reach parents and carers across Worcestershire.

Who are supporters of Parents' Voice?

We are all Worcestershire parents or carers – some supporters have very young children, others are the parents of teenagers (or older). Some people join on behalf of a parents’ group (eg: a school forum or a parent and toddler group).

Will it make a difference?

Yes! OK, we’re not promising that as soon as you tell us about something it will change overnight, but gradually we are making a difference and influencing changes. Our group began in a small way some years ago. We have grown and changed, but we are still a group of parents and carers who are passionate about making a difference to children’s services in Worcestershire.

In 2008 we gained a seat on the Joint Commissioning Board; we now have a seat on the Children’s Trust Executive Board.

How often do you meet?

The committee meet regularly – other supporters are usually welcome to attend.  Details of consultations, workshops and other events that can be attended are on the Future and upcoming events page.
