NNPCF Steering Group and NNPCF Representatives

Steering Group and the National structure

The Steering Group of the NNPCF is made up of appointed representatives from each of the nine regions. Due to the number of Local Authorities in the region, London has two representatives. The current regional representatives are:

Region Representative NNPCF Email
North East & Cumbria Maureen Morris
Yorkshire & Humber Fiona Beard
North West Kath Bromfield
East Midlands Dave Nutting
West Midlands Zara Bowden
Eastern England Mrunal Sisodia
London Kay Moore / Fazilla Amide
South East Lara Roberts
South West Doug Morris

Regional Representatives attend all Regional Network meetings with local forums, feeding back on national developments, as well as local issues back to the Steering Group. They also participate in regional planning meetings at a strategic level and support the development of parent carer participation throughout their region.

NNPCF Representatives

Due to the increasing workload there are a series of NNPCF representatives. These representatives attend meetings on behalf of the steering group and feedback any issues or action points in the same way as the steering group.

Working in partnership with Contact A Family (CaF)

NNPCF works in partnership with CaF and CaF supports the NNPCF Steering Group. CaF holds the grant for NNPCF and administers the grants for Parent Carer Forums as part of their contract with DfE. CaF is also responsible for strengthening parent carer forums and parent carer participation, through the support offered by CaF Regional Participation Advisors and that is why we need to and do work so closely together.
