We provide free legal advice on education law matters paid for by legal aid. SEND, discrimination and judicial review (e.g. for children not receiving education / unlawful exclusions etc.) are included as part of our work.
You might be able to get free and confidential advice from Civil Legal Advice (CLA) as part of legal aid. You can get help from CLA for problems including:
- debt, if your home is at risk
- housing, eg if you’re homeless or at risk of being evicted
- domestic abuse
- family issues, eg family mediation or if your child’s being taken into care
- special education needs - free legal advice on education law matters
Civil Legal Advice is part of the SEND Information Organisations Group (SENDIOG) - a network of like minded organisations that provide free and impartial advice to children, young people and their families.
