Right now, all children are losing their educational entitlements, and suffering learning loss and those with SEND are being further left behind than ever before. I want to use my background in both law and technology and the tools that we take for granted in the commercial legal world to improve this urgent problem.

I set up SSK with Janvi Patel and Denise Nurse in early 2021.

  • KEEN London runs free supported sports, games and activity sessions for children with additional needs in London. In response to demand from older beneficiaries (wanting to get involved in volunteering themselves) we are developing a new apprenticeship programme to support young people (16+) with additional needs to gain skills and experience to support their next steps after secondary school. We would really welcome some thoughts in this short anonymous survey. The survey link is here https://forms.gle/PdE4e4zgrzNsfd4o7, any questions please get in touch - thank you
