Special Educational Needs and Disabilities information, advice and support service (SENDIASS)

After a lengthy tendering process, we have opted to bring our SENDIAS Service in-house to provide our parents and young people with the best possible advice and support. This will be in effect from Friday 1 April.

The specification for this service was written with families of children and young people with SEND, and we know how much this service means to them. Many of the familiar faces from SENDIASS who work tirelessly to support our families will continue to do so under this new service.

Lots of other Council’s in England provide their SENDIAS Services in this way and we have already started to learn from their experiences to build a really supportive and impartial service.

Our local SENDIAS Service will continue to have a separate database, website and email, independent of the Local Authority.

Jayne Parrish is the new SENDIASS Service manager.

Jayne said: “SENDIASS staff are devoted to continuing to build on their fabulous skills and knowledge base which has ensured free, impartial, confidential and accurate advice and support to parent carers and children and young people in North East Lincolnshire, since 1999.

The team has had vast amount of training and we will be working hard to deliver the same standard of service.

“I am privileged to become the Service Manager and my vision is for us to continue to support families of SEND.”

It’s not our disabilities, it’s our ABILITIES that count.
