Harrow Parents 4 Disabled Children(HP4DC) is a parent forum made up of a group of parents of disabled children. We represent the voices of families of disabled children from birth to 25 years living in the London Borough of Harrow.
HP4DC came as a direct result of partnership working of Harrow Council and Harrow Mencap through the Aiming High Programme in 2008. We were originally supported by Harrow Mencap to become independently parent-led in Oct 2010. We are funded by the Department of Education with huge support from Contact A Family and the National Network of Parent Carer Forums.
Our main aim is to encourage and increase parent participation, provide a wide range of information, encourage information sharing between parents and professionals (health, education and social care) and helping parent/carers to get together and support eachother.
Our activities include:
We welcome all parents and professionals who would to find more about us or to join us.
