MySide Advocacy offers support and guidance for families working to secure the right provision for a young person whose education has been disrupted due to their Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

We work across the South of England. We have over 50 years of SEND experience between us and have developed strong links with independent experts and professionals working in the SEND field.

As a headteacher of SEND schools for the last decade I have worked with and represented young people and families across Hampshire and Surrey. Working with teams around the child and legal representatives.

Our Lead Advisor has led therapy departments for over a decade and holds a lead role around EHCP development and SENDist tribunal work.
