Trafford Parents Forum

Trafford parents supporting Trafford parents who have children and young people with SEN, Disability and/or additional needs.


Why are we here?


Being the parent or carer of a child with special needs can be a lonely, demanding and frustrating experience. We believe it is vital that parents have a meaningful voice, in these difficult times, and we are working towards a real partnership of parents and professionals, in the key areas that affect us. 

Apart from the big stuff, we also want the forum to be a source of help, advice and support for parents. That could be anything from a cup of coffee to parent training.

The forum is open to all parents and carers of Trafford’s children and young people (0 -25) with Special Education Needs or who are disabled. 


How to get involved


Whether you want to be an active member of the forum or just want to be in the know about what is happening in Trafford that affects you and your child, we’d love to hear from you. 


Closed Facebook Group 

We run a closed group over on Facebook which is for parent carers or other family members only. Here you can share your experiences, views and opinions in a safe environment. 


Facebook Page

 We have a Facebook page: SPIT Trafford, where you can find the latest parent related information from the forum and beyond. We also send out flyers on important topics, via the schools. 


Email distribution list

If you are happy to receive information via email, you can join our list of parents who keep up to date by looking in their inbox.


Regular meetings

The forum meets at regular intervals to discuss the issues within Trafford that affect our children and us. We realise, of course, that for many parents, attending meetings is not a realistic option and we use a range of means to keep as many parents as possible in the information loop. 

Come and join us at our weekly drop in and catch up for parent carers. We get the drinks in and there’s no need to book, you just turn up! Dates, times and venues are on our facebook page.   


Max Card - Discount Card

You can collect your Max card, a discount card for foster families and families of children with additional needs, at any of our drop in sessions.

More information can be found about the Max Card scheme at
