We want to hear from parents and guardians who have been to tribunal to ensure a child’s Education, Health and Care plan or assessment

Mon 2 Dec 2019

Budget cuts to education and local authorities have seen funding for children with special educational needs fall dramatically in recent years.

Since 2015, funds for pupils with SEN have fallen by 17%, while those with less complex needs have been particularly affected.

We’d like to speak to parents and guardians who have taken their local authority to a SEND tribunal to challenge a decision over a child’s Education Health and Care (EHC) plan or needs assessment.

We want to hear from people who have been part of a legal battle over SEND funding about the impact it’s had on their lives.

Did you get the outcome you’d hoped for? Did you have to take time off work to try and secure extra support for your child? How has your child’s education and health been affected?
