Please complete this form, in as much detail as possible, with information regarding your current situation and the SEND support you require. If you have not had support from the Alliance Advice service before and are not sure what you need, then all of our support services will start with a free 30-minute Advice Consultation to enable us to gather the required information from you and advise you as to the services you need.

Our advice service staff are not legal advisers, nor are they providing legal advice. Parent and Carer Alliance CIC accepts no liability for, nor do we guarantee, success at Tribunal.

If you decide to proceed, or if your case is known to the advice service, then complete the form in as much detail as possible and our advocate will be in touch. Click here for the service agreement and here for the terms and conditions

We have a large number of families requesting help and as our advocates are parent carers themselves, there might be a short delay responding to your request.
We will endeavour to be in touch within 3 working days, however this may be longer during busy periods.
