The Parents Involved in Participation (PIP) is a forum/group to express the views of parents and carers of disabled children and those with special needs. They are made up of parents and carers who know on a practical daily basis just how challenging caring for a child with special educational needs and disability is.

PIP can give independent advice and guidance to parents and carers on a range of subjects, many of which they have experienced themselves.

Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS)

Most NHS care and treatment goes well but sometimes things can go wrong. If you are unhappy with your care or the service you have received, it is important to let the NHS know so they can improve.  Take a look at the NHS website for more information.

The Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) offers confidential advice, support and information on health-related matters. They provide a point of contact for patients, their families and their carers.

You can find officers from PALS in your local hospital.
