Parent Advocacy Group

Volunteers have set up a community- led parent's advocacy group to support parents of children at risk of exclusion. 

We provide a confidential, independent service that supports parents to be heard. 

The number of school exclusions in Sheffield is increasing not decreasing, with a disproportionate number of children also having special educational needs (SEN), in care and from minoritized backgrounds.  Supporting parents to ask the important questions early on, supports schools to better support young people and builds a stronger school/ home relationship.

Our volunteers are based across the Sheffield City Regionand volunteer alongside full time employment and other commitments. 

We understand the importance of competent practice and so we would like to formalise the service we offer whilst still maintaining it's independence. 

This gofundme page is to support the group in developing a training programme for it's volunteers which include but are not limited to safeguarding, culturally appropriate advocacy, mental health first aid and report writing. 

Any contribution would be hugely appreciated and would go directly towards this community initiative.
