How we can help

We provide a range of services and advice to parents and carers of children and young people with SEND.

We aim to help parents and carers to understand more about their children’s entitlements, and navigate the processes to secure the right educational provision.

Securing the right provision to meet needs can be extremely daunting and complex to families already struggling to care for children with high levels of educational need and disabilities. They need advice on how to work with their LA and how best to respond appropriately to what can seem an overwhelming amount of legal processes and policies that they have little experience or knowledge of.

We provide a range of accessible services to parents, delivered by trained volunteers, with all advice underpinned by current legislation, regulation and the SEND Code of Practice 2015.

We are in good hands at SOS!SEN. The volunteer advisors have unparalleled knowledge of the rights of SEN children. At a time when people were telling us to accept whatever the Local Authority gives us and be grateful to have any support, SOS!SEN were on our side and ensured that we were equipped with every bit of knowledge necessary.
