About Rebecca Whippy

Independent SEND Consultant

An experienced Paralegal consultant with a long-standing background in Special Educational Needs and Disability legislation – I have a history of assisting families of children with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities to ensure they get the support and the benefits they are entitled to. 

Other areas of work I specialise in are Court of Protection (Deputyships) and Lasting Powers of Attorney work. My clientele are usually young people with Disabilities and their parents.

In my spare time I am a local Councillor and sit on the Cabinet of Eastbourne Borough Council as Disability Champion, Lead Member for Equalities & Fairness and Community Safety. I have 4 children – 3 girls and my son who is Autistic. I am also a Disability Rights Campaigner working to ensure SEND children and their families are able to live inclusively within their communities.

My role as Tribunal Consultant is to support families and represent parents at Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunals (SEND Tribunals). My aim is to ensure families are treated fairly and are supported through good advice and representation at Tribunals.

I take cases from all over England.


“Rebecca will go out of her way to help anyone who is in need. One of the most selflessly kind people that I know.”
