Highland Children’s Forum is a registered charity incorporated in 2000, created by the parent carers of children with additional support needs. The Forum aims to ensure that the voices of these children are heard in the design and provision of services in Highland.
The Forum concentrates its activities on developing ways to hear the voice of children in need and to relay this to central policy authorities.
It seeks to influence changes in policy to bring about better outcomes for children and young people.
