The National Parent Partnership Network is funded by the Department for Education to support and promote the work of Parent Partnership Services across England.

Parent Partnership Services (PPS) are statutory services that offer free, impartial and confidential information, advice and support to parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN).

What kind of things do they do?


  • Run a confidential helpline

  • Support in preparing for and attending meetings

  • Help in filling in forms and writing letter/reports

  • Support parents in resolving disagreements with school and the LA

  • Signpost to other statutory and voluntary services

  • Link to local parent support groups and forums

  • Ensure that parents views help inform and influence local policy and practice

  • Offer training opportunities for parents and professionals
