I was very impressed with the professionalism of the service and literature and extremely grateful for the advice provided. In our case, the [Enquire] Helpline helped to secure a positive outcome from the local authority for our child, together with a commitment to the revision of the authority’s policy.
Welcome to Enquire’s website
We are the Scottish advice service for additional support for learning.
If you feel a child or young person needs extra help to get the most from their learning and are unsure what to do, we can help you. We have lots of practical advice and information about the education and additional support needs system in Scotland. Enquire will explain how the system may relate to your situation and advise you on possible ways forward.
If you have a question, contact us by phone or email. You can also have a look through the Enquire guides in our publications section and we can send you copies. For information on particular topics, have a look at our features section. If you don’t know who to contact at your Council, see the Local Authorities page.
