He has particular interest and expertise in health, education and social care, with a focus on disability and children’s rights cases.

In this training session Steve will cover the key legal duties in relation to health, education and social care for children and young people aged 0-25. Issues covered will include social care assessments and rights to short breaks and other services, Education Health and Care needs assessments and plans and the rights of children with complex health needs. Steve will also cover broader issues of general relevance, such as discrimination law and duties around fair consultation.
This FREE session is very interactive and there will be lots of opportunities for people to ask general questions, although Steve cannot advise on individual cases during the training. You do not need any previous knowledge of SEND Law, but MUST BE the parent carer of a child/young person aged 0-25 years with SEND and live in the Wokingham Borough.
