Bristol Evening Surgery: Thursday 18th July

In response to feedback from our service users in Bristol, we’re holding another evening ‘surgery’ for parents and carers of children with SEND, on Thursday 18th July.  Come and meet one of our team and receive one to one help and support with your query about your child’s special educational needs.  
We’re offering 30 minute appointments with an Information, Advice and Support Worker, between 6.00 - 8.00pm.  These must be booked beforehand.  We’re happy to look at paperwork, give you guidance about filling in forms and to discuss next steps with you.  Please note - this surgery is only for those resident within the Bristol City local authority area.  We will ask you to confirm your address when booking.  Click HERE for further details and to book your time slot.
