Trafford SEND Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS)

We provide free, confidential, impartial advice and support to parent carers, children and young people aged 0 - 25 in relation to Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) who live in Trafford.

 

Trafford SENDIASS offer information, advice and support on:

  • The law around SEND
  • Health and social care in relation to special educational needs provision
  • Personal budgets
  • Education health care plans (EHCP)
  • Information on the Local Offer (Services and provision available for those with SEND)
  • Transition post 16 - Preparing for adulthood
  • Resolving any disagreements

 

The SEND Code of Practice says that every local authority (LA), should make available an Information Advice and Support Service that is easily identifiable and at arms length from the rest of the LA SEND services. This ensures that you recieve a truly impartial service.

Our SENDIASS Steering Group is made up of representatives from local authority health, education and social care services along with an equal number of parent carers. The Steering Group is chaired independently and is responsible for auditing the service against the National Minimum Standards Framework, ensuring impartiality is maintained. The group is influential in shaping the development of the service.

We encourage and support joint working between you, the school/setting, the local authority and other agencies to develop positive relationships and outcomes. We work in close partnership with Trafford Parents' Forum
