Complaints and Appeals Procedure about assessment of need application (Disability Act 2005)

The Disability Act 2005 provides for a special complaints and appeals procedure which you can use if you are unhappy with your child's assessment of need or Service Statement.  It also provides a process for dealing with complaints about access for people with a disability.

You can make a complaint after you have submitted a completed assessment of need application form to the Assessment Officer if you are dissatisfied.
