What We Do

We offer a free, friendly, independent and confidential telephone helpline for parents and others looking for information and advice on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

We concentrate on helping people to find their way through the legal and procedural maze which is so daunting to so many who try to obtain satisfactory provision for a child’s special needs.


Please Note: the helpline is now closed for the Easter Break and will re-open again on Tuesday 23rd April.

Do you shop at Waitrose in Richmond?

Over the course of April, Waitrose will display our charity name, and a short description of what we do on one of the “Community Matters” boxes in their shop. At the end of the month, they will donate a proportion of £1,000 to our charity, based on the proportion of votes their customers cast for our charity and two other good causes.

Please put your green token in our box, the more votes the bigger the donation.

Volunteering Opportunities

We have opportunities for volunteers to spend time in our office and charity shops. Interested? Want to find out more?
