North Yorkshire PACT is a collective voice for parents and carers in North Yorkshire.
We ensure that parents’ views and experiences influence local services to make things better.
We believe that by working together we can make our voices heard and raise other people’s awareness of our children’s needs and recognition of our role as parent carers. Together our views and experiences can be received more clearly and strongly.
We include parents, grandparents and foster parents of children and young people with learning difficulties, complex health needs, rare disorders and genetic conditions, physical disabilities and those with sensory needs, challenging behaviour and those who haven’t received a diagnosis.
Ohana is a parent initiated, professionally led group offering support and friendship to all families coping with the unique challenge that is involved in raising a child with special educational needs or a disability.
