Coram Family and Childcare

Coram Family and Childcare works to make the UK a better place for families by bringing together what we learn from our on the ground parent-led programmes and our research to campaign for solutions that parents want and need. We focus on childcare and early years to make a difference to families’ lives now and in the long term.

New Free SEND Resources for Early Years Professionals

Coram Family and Childcare is pleased to launch a set of free online resources aimed at early years professionals who work with parents who have children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). These resources have been commissioned by the Department for Education.


For Professionals and Organisations

The resources are designed to help professionals and organisations to give consistent information and advice to families and for childcare providers to understand how to make their settings accessible to all children. Contained within them are best practice case studies offering tips and ideas, and a guide for childcare providers.

For Parents

We have also developed information and guidance to help families who have children with special educational needs and disabilities access the childcare that meets their needs, including a section about how to complain and appeal decisions.
