Local help for children with special educational needs and disabilities

The Hammersmith and Fulham Local Offer provides information about services that children, young people and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. Knowing what's out there gives you more choice and control over what support is right for you.

Parents Active is an independent forum to help parents/carers of disabled children living in Hammersmith and Fulham. Get in touch with them if you need support around your child’s additional learning needs.

The Stephen Wiltshire Centre supports children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families. They offer a range of events and activities and also hold regular advice and information sessions for parents/carers.
