APTCOO - A Place to Call Our Own is a registered charity based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, working to improve the life chances of children, young people and their families who experience a wide range of barriers created by having special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). These barriers include conditions affecting social, educational, development and behaviour.  Young people may experience neurological conditions and physical disabilities too. At the earliest opportunity we provide a wide range of information, advice and access to a personalised range of specialist health, care and education support services for children and young people with SEND and their whole family unit. We work as equals with young people and their families to help create better opportunities to succeed in life.

APTCOO is a specialist Alternative Education provider using highly innovative and creative practical strategies that turn opportunities into real and successful change. We work in partnership with Nottinghamshire County and Nottingham City Council and local schools to deliver flexible alternative provision that will ultimately improve young people's well-being, attendance and achievement together with confidence to re-engage back into mainstream. We are able to offer unique, safe and accessible spaces catering for small numbers of children with complex needs, including physical and behavioural.

Our services are delivered across various sites, each having its own unique specialism and based within the local communities, we work closely together with the school and the family providing parent/carer and sibling support, this can help when problems include getting from home into school.  We are a one-stop resource centre, open 7 days a week where families feel safe and improve their health, education and wellbeing within an all-inclusive community hub setting.  We support families to make informed choices and work together with a wide range of complementary partners in order to provide access to the right services, at the right time, with the right people.
