"As a Supported Accommodation provider, we submitted our application before the 28th of October deadline. Unfortunately, Ofsted received a high volume of applications and lacked Inspectors to review files in a timely manner. Our organisation was impacted negatively as we were unable to take on new children. Anna helped us write to Ofsted. Anna… is efficient, responsive, and professional and we do not hesitate to recommend her service. We believe that by using an industry expert law firm our application was expediently reviewed.”
