Support send kids
Founded by lawyers for parents and professionals to give knowledge and support.
A world where access to education through the legal system for SEND Kids is pain free.
We help SEND families navigate the system to access their child's right to an education and to save precious time.
We use tech to bring transparency and access to justice. We put SEND families 'in the know'.

WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
The system that was set up to support and guide the educational needs of SEND children is broken. Although COVID made the situation worse, even outside of COVID, for decades this system was not fit for purpose. SEND families want to SELF-SERVE and the system makes this too hard.
"Navigating the SEND system should not be a bureaucratic nightmare, difficult to navigate and requiring significant levels of legal knowledge and personal resilience".
House of Commons Education Committee, October 2019
HOW and who WILL WE HELP?
- enable SEND families to self-serve information they need;
- use technology to bring transparency to and evidence the problem;
- blend the voices of the professionals, especially the lawyers and the experts-by-experience; and
- amplify, aggregate and escalate existing voices in this space
And put SEND families in the know.
