We take the safety of our families, their children and young people, our staff and partners extremely seriously. It is important to SENDIASS that we continue to deliver support to families during this time, however the way we do things will be different.

We are currently not offering face to face meetings with families, both in the community or at school. SENDIASS will not be able to attend meetings until further notice. Wherever possible alternative ways of working will be put in place and we will seek to hold virtual meetings instead of face to face. As always, we are contactable by email or through our helpline to ensure that families still have access to the information, advice and support they require.

EHC Plans - temporary changes
The government has made temporary changes to the law on Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessments and plans. This is to give local authorities, health commissioning bodies, education settings and others who contribute to these processes more flexibility in responding to the demands placed on them by coronavirus.
