BPV is Bromley’s Parent Carer forum and has been representing the views of local parents and carers of children with SEND living in the London Borough of Bromley. for over 12 years.
As a member of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums, BPV is one of the 152 Parent Carer forums in the Country who work with Local Authorities and Health services to ensure they deliver services that meet the needs of children with SEND. BPV does this by gathering the real lived experiences of families and using this information to influence the local authority, healthcare providers and educational settings where there are problems or gaps in provision as well as when services are working well.
BPV as part of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums also has to ensure that the views and experiences of Bromley families are included in the legislation and service development at a national and government level too.
We provide an opportunity for parents and carers to express their views and input into the planning and delivery of SEND services.
We signpost, support and empower families to obtain the best possible support and services for their children.
We proudly became a registered charity in April 2017.
