NPFS Roles and Work

National Parent Forum of Scotland External Representation

The National Parent Forum of Scotland has representatives on the following national working groups and organisations.  We have our own working groups, comprised of our reps from across Scotland, who gather and feed views and experiences into these national bodies.  Views are also sought from all our reps who in turn cascade information out to parent councils in their local authorities.  Some local authorities do not yet have mail lists for parent councils in their areas and we are working to improve this. We are currently building communication networks across the country, to create opportunities uniformly for involving parents and parent councils.
