Ensuring children, young people and families are accessing the appropriate funding, services and support

  • If you are a parent, you will understand that receiving the best possible support for your child is fundamental.
  • However, many children, young people and families find themselves without access to crucial funding, services and support because they are not aware of what they may be entitled to or they face opposition from their local authority and/or Clinical Commissioning Group.
  • Added to this, the legislative framework which governs provision for children and young people is complex.
  • We can help you and your child ensure that you are receiving the right funding, services and support available.

How Moore Barlow can help

Due to the complex nature of the law surrounding children and young people, many people miss out on the entitlements for their child, simply by not being aware of them. If you think your child is not receiving the appropriate funding, services or support available, having the guidance of an experienced children, young people and families’ solicitor is invaluable.

Following severe cuts to local authority and NHS budgets, access to funding, support and services is increasingly difficult to achieve. You may also find that you are facing opposition from your local authority or Clinical Commissioning Group, who may be depriving you and your child of your entitlements. We understand that this can be a stressful and difficult situation for you and your family.

With a wealth of experience in helping children, young people and families, we can provide an efficient service in helping you receive the funding, services and support you require. We take time to understand your individual needs and requirements, enabling us to help you in the best way possible.

Our expert team work across our offices in London, Southampton, Guildford, Lymington, Richmond and Woking, offering specialist support on a local and national level. Contact us for more information on how we can help your family.
