We love working for Greenwich Parent Voice and want to share it with you. Get in touch if you'd like to join our team!
Greenwich Parent Voice is managed by Joanne Delap and Vivien Davies. Jo has a teenage son with Aspergers in a mainstream sixth form and Viv has a daughter with complex needs who attends a mainstream primary school.
Both Viv and Jo have many years' experience gathering parent views so that together we can improve services for children with all disabilities in Greenwich. They work closely with RBG children's services, local MPs and politicians, NHS managers, SENCOs in schools across Greenwich as well as the leadership and family support teams in Charlton Park Academy and Willow Dene school (special schools in the borough).
Our Parent Consultants have an advisory role. They offer detailed insight to us, and to wider consultations, based on their own area of expertise as carers. Get in touch if you would like to become a Parent Consultant. It's easy and rewarding and your experience can directly help others on the same journey.

Our Parent Leaders volunteer to host regular coffee mornings for carers of special needs in their own school. They bring parents together to enjoy a social group, be informed and make their voices heard. These groups take place as often or as frequently as suits and we can provide support, updates to share and guest speakers. Get in touch with us if you would like to become a Parent Leader.
