Dorset Parent Carer Council (DPCC)

The Dorset Parent Carer Council (DPCC) is made up of parents and carers of children who have a variety of special needs from complex medical, challenging behaviour, learning or physical difficulties and more. We work to provide a strong and united voice for families in Dorset. Our aim is to help improve the lives and opportunities for families, children and young people who are disabled in Dorset. The Dorset Parent Carer Council represents your views in a number of ways including holding meetings, working groups, steering groups, attending interviews, talking at conferences and being part of training, consultations with individuals or small groups and more. By becoming a member you can have a voice in this process as well as getting the latest developments that may affect your family.
