Are you currently expecting a baby?

Do you have a child under the age of 2?

If so, we would love you to be a part of our Parent and Carer Panels

We need your help to improve the services in the Bradford district for all parents/carers - from pregnancy, to the child's second birthday and beyond. 

Your voice will help us to provide the best for you and your family, and to help us shape the services offered through our Family Hubs and Start for Life offer.  Complete the simple form below, and we'll be in touch!

Who else will be part of the panel?

We want to to encourage all mums, dads, carers who are pregnant or have children up to the age of 2. This is because we want to hear their views and opinions about the Family Hubs and Start for Life offer. 

We want to hear from a diverse group of parents and carers to ensure we listen to all voices in the community.

What will we talk about?

We want to listen to local parents and carers about the services on offer, where they are delivered, how well they work and what we could do better.

Panel members can take part in activities such as focus groups and surveys as part of this.

What support will be available?

We want to enable a wide range of people to take part, so we will discuss with you what you need to join us. A few examples of what we can offer include:

  • creche/childcare for meetings where necessary
  • offer meetings across the district and or virtually
  • travel expenses to meetings
  • interpreting services

We will support with any other accessibility needs to enable you to fully participate in meetings/training.

When will the meetings happen?

We're planning to hold the meetings on the following dates:

  • 23rd July 2024
  • 3rd September 2024
  • 22nd October 2024
  • 3rd December 2024

Some of them will be in person and some may be virtual, and don't worry if you can't attend them all!

Don't forget to register your interest and we'll be in touch!
