Tribunal Casework Support
IPSEA's Tribunal Casework volunteers provide individual support for the families whose cases they take. This free and specialist support can only be accessed by calling our Tribunal Helpline.
If the assessment of Tribunal Helpline Volunteer Adviser shows that you need this support, it will be provided throughout the Tribunal process - including representation at your hearing if needed.
Our Casework Volunteers work with parents to empower them to obtain the best possible result their Tribunal. This includes:
- The preparation of papers for Tribunal
- Case management process
- Advice on evidence required
- The role of witnesses
- Working documents
- Negotiation with LEA
- Representation at hearing
- Assessment of decisions
Parents remain in control of the Tribunal process at all times and are responsible for making the decisions about what they want the Tribunal to know about their child’s needs, the support their child requires and the most appropriate educational placement for their child.
We are very grateful to Linklaters for their support of this unique service.
