Parent and Carer Alliance CIC offers a range of self-funded SEN support services to families who would like us to undertake the administration tasks related to their EHCP/Appeal, or who need ongoing support for difficulties they may be facing in relation to getting the right support for their child's/young person's SEN. As a Community Interest Company (CIC) we have tried to keep these services as affordable as we can, whilst covering our costs and helping us to continue to support families.

Our advice service staff are not legal advisers, nor do they provide legal advice. Parent and Carer Alliance CIC accepts no liability for, nor do we guarantee, success at Tribunal. If you decide to proceed then you are accepting support on this basis.

If you are not already known to the Alliance Advice service, then all of our support services will start with a free 30-minute Advice Consultation to enable us to make recommendations as to which services could be beneficial to you.

 Following this discussion, or if your case is known to the advice service - if you decide to proceed then complete this form in as much detail as possible, giving information regarding your current situation and the SEN support you require 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.
