EVENT FOR PARENTS & CARERS: 27th February 2017 - Post 19 Education – What is my child entitled to?



The Children and Families Act 2014 provides that an Education, Health and Care Plan can continue to be maintained until the age of 25. However, the law does not provide a right of education to the age of 25. To date, this is resulting in a post code lottery of provision where some young people are receiving provision post 19 and others are not.

This seminar is for parents and carers who are concerned at the provision which is being offered to their child after the age of 19. The seminar will explain:

  • The duties of the Local Authority in considering post 19 education
  • The young person’s rights and how you can support them
  • How social care support may be accessed
  • Your rights to request specialist independent college placements and therapies
  • Appealing to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal

The seminar will take place in Cambridge on Tuesday 21st February 2017. We will be running two different slots due to the demand. Session 1 will take place from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm. Session 2 will take place from 5.00pm to 8.00pm.

To register your interest please email us at and a formal booking form will be sent to you. Alternatively, you can complete an online booking form below and we will invoice you for the seminar. The cost of the seminar is £50.00 per person, which includes light refreshments.



Thank you for your hard work in contributing to our success. I know your confidence in the weakness of the case gave us great heart in continuing to fight on
