IPSEA - Independent Parental Special Education Advice

About IPSEA

Independent Parental Special Education Advice (known as IPSEA) is a registered charity (number 327691). IPSEA offers free and independent legally based information, advice and support to help get the right education for children and young people with all kinds of special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities. You can read an example of how IPSEA helps children and young people here. IPSEA gives advice and support on:

IPSEA's services are provided by our highly trained volunteers. Many of our volunteers are parents of children with special educational needs. 

IPSEA relies on donations and grants from trusts, companies and individuals in order to run our free services (rather than Government funding). Our independence enables us to hold statutory bodies to account.

We seek to improve SEN policy across England using the evidence we gather via our services. We make complaints against Local Authorities, take part in Government consultations and provide training on SEN/disability law.

IPSEA also provides training on the SEN legal framework to parents, professionals and other organisations.

Tribunal Helpline - All available appointments will be released at least one week in advance and can be booked here.   If you have any problems using the booking system, please email bookings@ipsea.net or phone 01799 582 030.
