Informing and empowering parents

Connecting Worcestershire parents with people who can make a difference to families’ lives

The voice of every parent matters

and we work to make sure every voice is heard.

Parents often need information

Parents’ Voice shares information to help parents to be parents, whatever the age of their children

What Is Parents’ Voice?

Welcome to the Parents’ Voice website, run by Worcestershire parents for Worcestershire parents. We want to keep parents in the county informed, up to date and to be their voice.

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 the county 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 share useful information to help parents to be parents, whatever age their children are. We also 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.

Have a look around our web pages to find out more about us and join Parents’ Voice today – together we can make the voice of EVERY parent matter in Worcestershire

What we do…

Information – we share useful information to help parents to be parents whatever age their children are.We send out regular updates via email and on this website. You can join our mailing list to receive our email updates (it’s free) here.

Social Media – we use Twitter and Facebook to reach parents and carers across Worcestershire, sharing links and information we think parents will find useful.

Information Sessions – we have free information sessions throughout the year, on a variety of topics. In the past we have hosted meetings on dealing with anxiety and online safety, for details about future sessions check this website, follow us on Facebook or Twitter or sign up for our email updates.

We also do…

As a group we gather parents’ points of view, to try to influence change. We also keep parents informed about consultations, surveys and focus groups that they may want to take part in.

Local Consultations – we collect 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.

National Consultations – we take part in national consultations giving Worcestershire parents an opportunity to influence national decisions and share links to encourage parents to take part themselves.

We want to challenge and be an impartial voice for parents. 

By acting together we will be able to influence change for the future of every child and young person in Worcestershire.

Who are supporters of Parents' Voice?

We are all Worcestershire parents or family 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.

How often do you meet?

The committee meet regularly (about six times a year)  and supporters are welcome to attend.  Details of consultations, workshops and other events that can be attended are on the News and Events page.
