Highland Children’s Forum

Listening to children and young people, speaking with policy makers.

Highland Children’s Forum is a registered charity set up in 2000, created by the parent carers of children with additional support needs. The Forum aims to ensure that the voices of these children are heard in the design and provision of services in Highland. We now include children and young people aged between 0 and 25 years.

Highland Children’s Forum is a voluntary association with Scottish Charity Number: SC031945.

Our Mission:

  • To enable children and young people facing challenges to have their voices heard.
  • To represent them by influencing positive change in policy and practice which leads to better outcomes.
