BPV Resources

Bromley Parent Voice is overseen by a board of trustees. The trustees set the direction and strategy on the work of the forum management team. Currently there are six trustees.

The management team perform the day to day tasks for the forum. The managers are supported by a team of parent representatives.

All are responsible for representing the views of a wider group of parents. Each member has a system of networking and disseminating information to other parents. The Parent Voice management team meets on a regular basis. The trustees meet monthly. Venues and meeting times are arranged for the convenience of parents/carers.

Bromley Parent Voice link with other parent forums via London region cluster meetings and the National Network of Parent Carer Forums. This enables Bromley parents to have a voice within, and learn from, regional and national engagement work as well as supporting parental engagement within Bromley.
