PODS is a parent carer/peer led charity with staff and volunteers who have the relevant ‘real life’ experience to support families who have a child with a disability or additional need (aged 0 – 25 years). Parent participation is at the heart of the forum, as parent carers can pinpoint problems frequently experienced by families with disabled children. This knowledge is useful to professionals in helping to improve how children’s services are delivered so they better meet families’ needs. PODS continues to ensure communication links exist between these families and the strategic decision makers.
Our Objectives are: To relieve the needs of children and young people, including their parents, carers and families, who have disabilities and/or special educational needs in the Telford & Wrekin area. In order to improve their quality of life, promote their inclusion in their local communities and to help and support them to reach their full potential.
Our current opportunities include: Befriender
