Welcome to EalingHELP Minimize

Happy New Year to you all. We've been busy getting a new section ready to provide all the information you need for the upcoming Ealing SEND Fair which will be taking place on Friday 24 February.

Organised by the Ealing Parent Carer Forum, together with EalingHELP, Ealing Mencap, Contact a Family and ISAID!. This years event promises to be bigger and better than last years. Just visit our Ealing SEND Fair section to find out more.

As a spin off from the work in putting this in place we have also started work on an Adult Section of the site. With the extended age range of the EHC Plans running up to 25 there is a lot of overlap in service provision. Early days yet but we will be adding to this over the next few weeks.

You can also find on the site the latest update of Ealing Council's Short Break Statement.
