Legal Rights Service

Our Legal Rights Service provides families of children with brain conditions with help when facing difficulties accessing support services they are entitled to.

Public bodies in the UK have certain duties to provide health, social care and other services for disabled children. Our Legal Entitlements and Problem-Solving (LEaP) Project helps you get the right legal support for your child if you are having difficulty accessing the right services. Requests for help must satisfy our eligibility criteria – you can find out more in our project guidelines below.

More About Our LEaP Project

The LEaP Project is open to parents and carers of children aged 16 or under who have a brain condition and who need help to resolve a legal problem regarding access to health, social care or other support services. It is an innovative problem-solving project that has been developed with the School of Law at the University of Leeds.

Template Letters

Finding the right words when writing to official bodies can be difficult. We’ve created a series of template letters to make it less daunting for you if you need to write to your local council, social services or health body. Our template letters contain legal information and where necessary we have different templates for England, Wales and Scotland.
