Hillingdon SENDIASS is a free, confidential and impartial service for parents and carers, children and young people up to 25 years. The service provides legally based, impartial, confidential and accessible information, advice and support for parents of children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities, about education, health and social care. The service can offer face to face, telephone advice as well as casework and representation when needed. They offer support to parents of children with special educational needs and those who have been excluded or are at risk of being excluded from school.
The service will work with parents and young people together but also provides a service directly and separately to young people aged 16-25.
The service encourages partnership between parents, local authorities, schools and voluntary bodies to improve outcomes for children and young people with SEN or disabilities. Hillingdon SENDIASS can provide help and support to parents/carers or young people in the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) process.
