A one-page profile captures all the important information about a person on a single sheet of paper under three simple headings; what people appreciate about me, what’s important to me and how best to support me.

For more about one page profiles and how they might help communication and relationships in Heath, Social Care and Education see: Helen Sanderson Associates One page profiles

Flexible working – what rights do parents have

The Good Schools Guide provides information about flexible working, if your child has special needs you might need to take more time off work than others.

You can find information about what rights you have and what time off you can request on the Flexible working – what rights do parents have? page on the Good Schools Guide website.

There is lots of information about the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards on the County Council website.
