About Project

Parentsactive is a support network for families of disabled children (0-25) living in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The aim of Parentsactive is to enable parents to gain and share information both locally and nationally, make new friends and, most importantly, realise that they are not alone.

Parentsactive is now the Parent Forum for Hammersmith and Fulham and is an independent voice of parent/carers. The forum encourages parents to participate in all issues relevant to disability. We also work with the Local Authority to help share services for disabled children/young people and ensure that their needs are met. We are part funded by the Third Sector, The Local Authority and receive a grant from the Department of Education

Parentsactive is led by the Parent Forum Lead and a team of 12 parents, who form the Steering Committee. The forum enables parents of children with learning disabilities, and additional needs, to meet and support one another in the following ways:

Forums held every alternate week at the Masbro Brook Green Children’s Centre on Tuesdays and at the Stephen Wiltshire centre on Fridays, attended by guest speakers from statutory, voluntary and private sectors
Training Events/Workshops on topics pertaining to disability
Conferences and consultation events
Weekly emails
Reports on relevant issues
Facebook page (Parentsactivehf) Closed Facebook page “Parents of Parentsactive” and twitter feeds (@parentsactive) Membership is free and you can access our services by contacting us and filling in our membership form.
