GL families


Thanks to being awarded funding from both the National Lottery Community Fund, and from the Barnwood Trust, we are able to offer up to 7 hours of free 1:1 support to families whose children have additional needs and who live in, or receive services from, Gloucestershire.

All support now starts with a free 30 minute consultation, Click here to request this support

If, during this consultation, it becomes clear that you will need some more support, then the adviser will ask for more details and make a referral for you to receive up to a further 6.5 hours of support.

This support might include individual support for your family, help preparing for and attending meetings with any agency supporting your child (assessments, reviews, planning meetings, child protection conferences, EHCP reviews, health care planning meetings etc); supporting you to make effective complaints; facilitating meetings between you and professionals to ensure effective communication; helping you through complex procedures, writing letters, putting across their views etc.
