The Department of Education has recently announced that

‘The Government has confirmed funding for Parent Carer Forums for next year. In 2014- 2015, £15,000 will be available for each Forum – an increase of £5,000, compared to the current financial year.  Parent Carer Forums have a key role to play in implementing the SEN reforms at a local level.  The additional funding available next year reflects the growing demands on them to work closely with local authorities and other partners to deliver the reforms.”
