Special Educational Needs and Disability, Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS)

SENDIASS provides a free, impartial and confidential service to parents and carers of children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) aged 0 to 25. We also support young people with SEND.

How we can help

We offer information, advice and support to families with children and young people who have SEND on a range of education issues. This includes health and social care issues related to education.

We can offer support in a variety of ways:

  • listen to your views
  • explain your rights and responsibilities
  • give impartial information and advice
  • try to ensure that your voice is heard and that you are involved in decisions that affect you
  • signpost you to other sources of information, advice and support

We also have a role in providing training and informing local policy and practice.
