Parents 4 Change - Where Children Matter

Welcome to the Parents 4 Change website! Parents 4 Change is committed to ensuring that parents and carers of children and young people with disabilities and special educational needs are involved as equal partners in decision making with local education, social care, health and voluntary agencies.

We want to see an inclusive and caring Middlesbrough where our children and young people are valued, respected and supported to fulfil their potential and live fulfilling lives. We also want a Middlesbrough that supports the families that look after them.

We look forward to hearing from all parents and carers of children and young people with SEN and disabilities so I hope you find our website interesting and helpful and are inspired to join us and support our work.
