About CEN

Communities Empowerment Network provides free advice, support and representation to parents across London. Our team of advocates work with over 1000 parents per year to retain young people in mainstream education. We are passionate about all young people being given the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

CEN is supported by our fabulous funders (see their links below). However we are also incredibly grateful for the continued donations of supporters and the families we work with. If you would like to donate to CEN and help other families then we'd love to hear from you.

Tuesday 25th December 2018 - Monday 31st December 2018.

Our office will re-open on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.
