Can You Help the WPCC Bid for £1,000 to Support Parent Carers?

Parent Carer Forums in the South West are being given the opportunity to bid for up to £1000 per forum from NHS England South West regional team. The aim of the bid is about how the parent carer forum can support Parent Carers in our local area, so that they are ready and able to take on life being a carer for a child or young person that has the following conditions with the following remit:-


  • To support the health and wellbeing of Parent Carers of Children and Young People who have a Learning Disability or Autism
  • To support the health and wellbeing of Parent Carers of Children and Young People who have complex and challenging needs


The WPCC would like to submit an application for this funding to support parent carers in our local area. We need to know therefore what you think we should put in our bid.

To help us write our bid, we need suggestions about how the funding could be used to benefit parent carers, if our bid was successful. You can be as creative as you like, as long as you think your suggestion is realistic. For instance, you might think a spa voucher, a massage, a gym session, a cooking class, a behaviour management course, a yoga session, a meditation course, or something else would make a positive difference.

Please bear in mind that if our bid is successful, we will need to evidence the positive difference the funding and activity has made.

Simply send your suggestions using the short [online form] we have set up; we will use the most popular and practical suggestions to inform our bid. Bids have to be submitted by 11th December and we will update in due course to let everyone know if we were successful in our bid or not.

This [online form] will close at 5pm on Sunday 1st December 2019.
