Pinpoint is the Parent Carer Forum for Cambridgeshire. We support parent carers of children and young people aged 0 -25 years with additional needs or disabilities. As a parent carer forum, we enable the Local Authority to fulfil its statutory requirement to listen, engage and work together with parent carers for the benefit of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families.


  • Provides information and signposts parents and carers to the services best suited to help them with their child’s needs. 
  • Engages and empowers parent carers by running free events, workshops and training, including an annual conference, and helps them ask for the services their children need. 
  • Works with statutory services as both a partner and critical friend; they both fund and provide support and services and Pinpoint ensures parents’ voices are heard and that parents help to shape services.  

 Formed in 2008 we were initially hosted within another charity. We have been an independent Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) since 2014, known as Pinpoint Cambridgeshire (1156920).

Each year we produce an Annual Report:

A voice for Cambridgeshire parent carers

We are the parent carer forum for Cambridgeshire. We represent the county  on the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF), and work with other forums in the Eastern regional network, helping us get the voice of parent carers in Cambridgeshire heard at a regional and national level.
