Support - We are here to help families

At Contact a Family – the national charity that supports families with disabled children regardless of their condition or disability – we’ve seen a four-fold increase in the number of calls to our free special educational needs (SEN) helpline since last September when the Government introduced radical changes to the way children and young people in England with SEN are supported in school and college.

We’re worried that the dramatic increase in calls means that there is still a lot of confusion out there.

If you care for a child with special educational needs or a disability and you are worried or confused about changes to the way your child is supported at school, call our free helpline - 0808 808 3555 - for expert advice, information and support.
