who are PaCC?

The Parent Carers’ Council (PaCC) is a parent-led forum which represents parents and carers of children (up to 25) with disabilities and additional needs who live in Brighton & Hove.

how it started

The forum was formed in 2008 to enable parent carers of children with any condition to work closely together to help improve services and support.

Our aim is to facilitate parents and carers involvement in the strategic delivery of services for children with disabilities and additional needs in Brighton & Hove. We are one of parent carers’ voices in the city.

PaCC is a member of the National Network of Parent Carers Forum, a network of over 150 Parent Carer Forums from across England. These member forums are arranged into nine regions, these follow the same regional breakdown as the Department for Education with each of the regions appointing a regional representative to act as their regional steering group member within the NNPCF national steering group. PaCC is part of the South East Region. The Parent Carer Forums are also supported by Contact.
