More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

The SEND Partnership Service (SPS) provides free confidential and impartial information, advice and support about matters relating to special educational need or disability, including health and social care. This advice can be provided to children and young people from 0 -25 with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) as well as their parents/carers. The child or young person does not need to have an Education ,Health and Care (EHC) plan for you to use the service. Our aim is to empower you by providing you with information, advice and support on national and local policies which will help inform your decisions.

We can provide practical support and guidance through a Volunteer Supporter who can assist parents at meetings and help them understand letters, reports and procedures connected with Special Educational Needs.
If you can offer some spare time to support parents of children with Special Educational Needs and would be interested in training to become a Volunteer Supporter, please contact the SEND Partnership Service.
