Social Services

Cases involving Social Services usually tend to be quite complex. The common problems encountered usually relate to resources being provide which are insufficient to meet the individual's needs or are too late in being delivered. It is also common to receive inappropriate advice of the resources and facilities available.  Quite often Social Service departments do not completely understand the nature or the Child or young persons learning difficulties and special educational needs.

I can assist in these matters through use of complaints procedures, mediation, Judicial Review and Disability Discrimination Claims under the Equality Act 2010 against Social Services.   I can also assist clients in the SENDIST Tribunal where the provision required and needed is an educational provision (under the new wider definition of educational provision) and has been wrongly categorised.

If you need help and advice on these, or any other matters relating to your child or young person's special educational needs, please call 029 2073 6329 to arrange your FREE initial telephone consultation or make an online enquiry by clicking here.
