What We Do

We offer a free, friendly, independent and confidential telephone helpline for parents and others looking for information and advice on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

We concentrate on helping people to find their way through the legal and procedural maze which is so daunting to so many who try to obtain satisfactory provision for a child’s special needs.


Please Note: the Helpline is closed for the half term break and will re-open on Monday 24th February 09:30 . . . .
