We can help you by:

  • listening to your concerns
  • helping you to express your views
  • helping you to prepare for meetings and attending them with you, if required
  • helping you with the paperwork
  • helping explore the options for a child or young person's education
  • putting you in touch with other support organisations

We are a self-referral service. Feel free to contact us:
