About us

We were previously known as ContinYou Ealing Parent Partnership service and supported parents and carers of children up to 19 with special educational needs with education queries. Following the changes connected with the Children and Families Act, we now support families of young people up to age 25 and can work directly with young people and support on issues relating to SEND and health or social care.

Who can we help?

We support parents/carers of children:

  • with any kind of additional need (learning, social, physical, medical etc)
    from ages 0 to 25
  • who live in Ealing Borough (even if their child goes to school elsewhere)

What can we help with?

  • Support at meetings (with school or local authority)
  • Assistance with paperwork
  • Explaining SEND procedures

Our office is at the Lido Centre in West Ealing. If you’re a local, it used to be an old cinema. We’re in the same building as various other voluntary and community organisations, so on the day of your visit you may find yourself combining a visit to Contact a Family or Mencap with an appointment with us!

Support group

What sort of group would you go to? What workshops would you like to see? Please let us know, so that we can involve you in forthcoming groups.

 

Feeding back your views

Your opinion matters!

After our first series of focus groups in 2011, we were able to feed back your views to the local authority about the SEN process.

In 2012, we arranged for parents to be involved in the EdComs focus group series, feeding back their views on improving specialist school provision in the borough.

In 2013, we put together parents’ views on the transport reform, resulting in it being redrafted by Ealing Council to be more accessible.

In 2014 we identified and supported families to be involved in Ealing’s consultation on the changes connected with the Children and Families Act.

 

Please let us know if you would be interested in joining future groups, by emailing us at isaidealing@family-action.org.uk.
