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!

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.
