About the forum
The National Valuing Families Forum ran between 2005 and 2017. The funding for the Forum came to an end on the 31st March 2017. Despite this, members of the forum will continue. At the moment this will be as an informal network, facilitating an information exchange whilst we plan and build for the future. You can find out more in the News Section.
Families talk about the big issues that are important to them.
The National Valuing Families Forum is made up of the family carers of people with learning disabilities from across England, and 'allies' - organisations and individuals working with families.
The Forum talks to the Government about the big issues, and influences the work that the Government does with and for all family carers of people with a learning disability.
