The aim of Make it Happen is to provide a support network for parents of disabled children in Westminster, helping them to gain and share information both locally and nationally.

We are a group of parent volunteers working together to help improve services in Westminster. All our members have an understanding of different forms of care within a wide range of disabilities.

We create a space at our drop-in sessions where parent carers can meet together, ask questions, talk and feel listened to. We can help you to access infromation, services and support. We run weekly drop-ins (term time only), information sessions and consultation events. We create opportunities for parent carers to get involved and have their say about services such as health, social care and education. Our Parent Representatives help to represent the views of parents to service providers.
