We offer to run Workshops for organisations and special interest groups, who would benefit from hearing about what we do and what help we are able to provide.

We could come to one of your regular meetings or one of your events and would tailor it to your needs.

Eleanor Wright, our coordinator and solicitor has been to a number of events this year as a guest speaker and has given training to parents, school staff and interested groups on the new EHC plan system based on legal facts and parental rights. 

Contact our admininistration team, if you would like to explore the possibility on admin@sosen.org.uk  Whilst we would not seek to charge for this, we would normally expect a donation to reflect the time and effort involved, travel expenses and ask the venue to photocopy documents to use at the session.
