What We Do

Our SENDIAS service covers all aspects of special educational needs (SEND) from providing you with information to address your earliest concerns, to helping you with complex legal processes like statutory assessments, Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP), mediation, appeals, exclusions and complaints.

We have a dedicated Information, Advice & Support (IAS) Line with a 24-hour answerphone. We also respond to email queries and have a contact form to receive messages from you via our website.  When able we provide face to face advocacy, (following COVID regulations and meeting safeguarding needs). Our website has useful info, provide workshops and links to further support.

Volunteer

The SENDIAS service we provide is a statutory service. However, as a charity we aim to provide a number of additional services to parents, for which we do not receive funding. We advertise for volunteers (including becoming a trustee) and invite service users and stake holders to advocate / fundraise for the service
