Special Educational Needs and Disability, Information, Advice, Support Services (SENDIASS) are statutory services which provide information, advice and support to parents and carers of children and young people who have, or may have, special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities; and young people themselves (16+).

Our Service is FREE of charge and is operated independently of the Local Authority by POINT. This means that we can provide impartial information, advice and support, which will focus on the needs of the child or young person.
