SEND Support Service


How we can support you

The SEND Support Service offers advice and support to children, young people, families, carers and a range of educational establishments for children with special educational needs and/or autism, aged 0 to 19 years.

Support available without a referral

You can request consultation support or access courses and workshops without a referral.


Anyone seeking advice for an individual child can request a consultation.

Parent or Professional consultations

Consultations are usually held by telephone or video call (Teams) and take around an hour.

Follow-up consultations are available if families or professionals request them, once the initial advice and strategies have been implemented.

How to request a consultation

Email [email protected], providing the following information:

1. About the child or young person

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth 

2. About the person who will be having the consultation

  • Name
  • Role (either parent/carer or professional role eg SENCo)
  • Email address
  • Phone number

3. Please also provide a brief background and what you hope would be the outcome of a consultation.

You will be contacted within two weeks to make arrangements for the consultation and this will normally take place in the following 6 weeks afterwards.


We offer a range of virtual and face-to-face courses and workshops to help parents understand and support their child's Special Educational Need (SEN).
