How do I apply for a card?
As a distributor, we have a responsibility to ensure the cards are to be issued to the right families. Therefore it is important you are registered with us – Harrow Parents 4 Disabled Children and Special Needs Community. If you are not known to us, we will need to see proof that the child or young person has a special educational need or disability, (proof can include EHC plan, DLA, a doctor’s or CAMHS’ letter. Any parent or carer/guardian of a child or young person (up to the age 25 years old) can apply for the card on their behalf. The card is registered in the child or young person name. The family must be a resident in Harrow (even if the child attends an out-of-borough school). If your child attends a Harrow school but you do not live in the borough, we cannot issue you a card. If you have paid online we will refund you £3.00 but charge you £1.49 for processing the refund. We do not profit from distributing the cards but incurred costs ourselves for processing payment.
Why register with us?
To ensure that families with a child with special needs are kept fully informed of issues that may affect them, and to advise them of relevant new services and opportunities.
