Your unified voice

Families Voice Icon White

The Families Voice is Demelza's parent carer group. They hold meetings where feedback can be discussed in more detail and a representative from Demelza can make sure that this has been taken further. 

You don’t have to come along to meetings to get involved, there will also be social get-togethers for you to enjoy together or you can just send the group your feedback and receive regular updates by email.

Download the meeting notes from the most recent meeting (23 January 2024).

Families Voice Exploration Day

"We are a group of parents and carers who provide a parent carer perspective."

Families Voice (1)

"By sharing our own lived experience and that of other families, we help to ensure that Demelza’s services meet the needs of all families. The Families Voice group links into the decision makers of Demelza; sharing views, asking questions and being listened to.

"We ensure feedback from families is heard and responded to. A recent example is #FestiveWishes gifts for the children. Due to feedback received from families, we will now recieve advance notice of delivery days, a choice of gifts that are suitable for each child and gifts for all children including siblings up to the age of 18.

"The Families Voice group is open to all parents and carers and any time you can offer - no matter how small - would be welcome."

Organising your own meet up

From January 2024 we will be swapping out our regular Demelza café meet-ups with quarterly family catch-ups with a member of Demelza's senior leadership team. If you would be interested in arranging more regular catch ups then please get in touch with the engagement team. We will help you advertise these to other families in your area. ☕
