Can you help us reach our target?
We're celebrating 30 years of IPSEA! To mark this big milestone, we're raising £30,000 this year towards our vital work – £1k for each year we've been supporting families of children with SEND.
Could you organise a fundraising event that could help us reach our target? How about a sponsored run? Or perhaps a coffee morning where you can raise funds for IPSEA? Or you can make a donation to help us reach our ambitious target!
NEWS: IPSEA highlights concerns about SEND funding to National Audit Office
We've described our experiences of a SEND system which fails to ensure families receive the same level of support across the country, where far too many children end up out of education, and where the funding does not match the goals set out in the Children and Families Act 2014.
Upcoming parent and carer training
Our parent and carer training helps families to navigate the legal framework, empowering them to secure the right educational support to meet their child's individual needs. Book onto one of our upcoming training days below:

GET SUPPORT: EHC plans
Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans can be long and complicated. They are required by law to contain certain sections; it is important to ensure your EHC plan matches the legal requirements as if it doesn't, it could make it difficult to enforce. Use our checklist to see if your plan complies with the law.

During February, we answered 355 calls on our helplines. Just a £5 donation will cover the cost of one of these calls, and will go a long way to helping families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
