Define Fine

We are a parent and carer-led organisation set up in response to the growing number of children and young people who experience school attendance difficulties. This is sometimes referred to as ‘school refusal’, or emotionally based school avoidance and may be due to unmet Special Educational Needs & Disabilities including physical or mental illness, either suspected or diagnosed, bullying or issues relating to academic pressure, or even the school environment. 

We provide peer support, run regular online webinars and workshops to share effective methods of advocacy and requests for support. We work closely with other SEND support groups, and in some areas with the LA and/or SENDIASS.

We also offer 1 to 1 advocacy and support in certain circumstances.

Our Facebook page connects our members, where they can reach out to each other and share experiences and support.
