  • making choices about/ supporting your child's educational development
  • accessing health or disability services
  • accessing mental health services
  • transport, access and attendance issues
  • English as an additional language/ translation requirements
  • parenting, managing behaviour and emotional support
  • legal advice and assistance around employment or your statutory rights

This page contains support for when the challenges you face are affecting your child's development and education as well as more general advice for the common difficulties families face, such as setting and managing budgets on low income for example.
