Latest ECF grant for SEND

On 2 October 2020, the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) granted Exceptional Case Funding (ECF) for representation in the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunal.

The grant was made to a client of Linda Ewen, Supervising Solicitor in the education law team at GT Stewart Solicitors & Advocates, for representation in a Complex Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) appeal where the client (a parent of a child with Special Educational Needs) would have been unable to effectively represent herself at the hearing.

PLP is supporting education law Legal Aid providers to make applications for SEND Tribunal ECF. This latest grant follows previous grants to clients of Simpson Millar and Coram Children’s Legal Centre.
