Member Only Support

Support services from member only organisations 

This page is where you can find out more about organisations you can access as members due to being special guardians from boroughs that make up the Special Guardianship North London Consortium. Other new services are coming very soon and will be advertised here as they become available. These will include specialist professional advice and help for Special Guardians and the opportunities to meet other Special Guardians in London, advice and counselling for you, your child or the family who live with you. All these services will be by phone or by online video during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you need to speak to a social worker about your child, you can still contact your local authority special guardianship team.
