Involving parents in decisions about service delivery is greatly beneficial to any organisation and has a significant impact on services. Research has shown that involving parents can improve the quality of information and services, and make them more relevant to people’s needs.
Having parent reps will help your network increase parent empowerment, enable change and progress and encourage cross-working. This is about working together to improve services, looking forward and using experiences from the past to make improvements for the future.
If you would like Bliss to support you with the parent rep process or would like any more information, please contact the Healthcare Engagement Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 020 7378 1122 or go to https://www.bliss.org.uk/be-a-parent-representative.
