Enquire – the Scottish advice service for additional support for learning 

Enquire is funded by the Scottish Government to help parents, carers, children, young people and professionals understand the framework for supporting children who require additional support for learning and to encourage positive partnerships between families, schools and local authorities to ensure children get the right support.

Enquire receive over 1,000 enquiries every year, mainly from parents and carers worried about some part of their child’s education – that their child is struggling in school, has a particular condition or is not getting the help they need.  In feedback about the service, parents and carers consistently say they wished they had known about the Enquire sooner and that it helped them feel more confident in working better with school staff.

We would very much appreciate your help in raising awareness of Enquire with parents organisations and groups in your local area. I would be happy to send copies of our free resources (including The parents’ guide to additional support for learning or our parents leaflet) for inclusion in parent information packs or for handing out at parent events.

I’ve included below some basic information about us which includes our website address if you would like to find out more about us.

Thanks for your help in advance. It is very much appreciated

Kind regards

Cat Thomson
