Participation Contract Preferred Provider Announced
March 12, 2018
Last week, the Department for Education announced that a consortium, led by Contact are the preferred bidder for the contract to support strategic participation of Children, Young People and Parent Carers.
As a part of this contract, Contact will be supporting strategic parent carer participation including local parent carer forums, the regions and the NNPCF for 2 years starting April 2018.
The Kids and the Council for Disabled Children will work to support local and national strategic participation for children and young people.
A key part of the contract is the requirement to explore opportunities for closer working between children and parent participation to make both even more effective.
The NNPCF are pleased to have been named within the contract as a key strategic partner. This move demonstrates the continued commitment to parent carer forums and the opportunities they offer their parent carer communities to participate in local discussions as well as regional and national developments. We look forward to continuing to work closely with members of the consortium.
